Fish – We recommend reaching out to your local fish farmers to see if they can provide you with the species you are looking for. We find it’s best to support your local fish farmer who can usually help deliver your fish and understands their specific needs. There are also suppliers who ship fingerlings around the country that can be found online. Shipping fish is risky business which is why we don’t do it anymore.

Plants – If you are purchasing seeds, we recommend Johnny’s Seeds. We have been successfully using their products since 2009 and they are a family owned business with a tremendous amount of resources on their website. We also recommend supporting your local nursery or garden center if you are looking for seeds or starts. Remember that if you purchase plants in soil, you should rinse off all of the soil before transplanting into your aquaponic system.
