    Its possible to draw trout tolerant water from the ground. My parents well is over 350 ft deep and the water temp straight from the ground is cool. I've never checked it, but I would guess @ 70*. I know geothermal heating systems use wells to heat and cool, so is a geothermal well suitable for trout?
    Then would you have to heat the water to make it compatible with aquaponics?

    Then burn the entire ram on the altar. It is a burnt offering to the LORD, a pleasing aroma, a food offering presented to the LORD. God loves BBQ!

      That puts them in the same range as channel catfish, which I had been told were the most efficient turning food into meat. I really like the way they taste.

        I tried trout in my basement once but I live in the mtns of NC.

        You gotta have a big tank so they can grow or they will stunt

        Cold water is a must or they will get disease
