I'm one of several people who live on a 29 acre freshwater lake. No gas or electric powered boats are allowed on the lake... only canoes, kayaks, and swimming. Plus there's plenty of fish.

I was think that - instead of building a pond in my backyard, I could set up an aquaponics system using my built-in lake.

Being new to aquaponics, I wanted to ask those of you who have more expertise, whether this is a good idea and, if so, what adjustments I might have to make when building my system.

Thanks SO much for your input.
