Slurry pit and fish farming
[Return to Topics]

When I bought my farm 6 yrs ago, there was a slurry pit, 8 feet deep,8 ft wide and 60 ft long,all cement lined and full of clean water year around. It is covered with cement blocks about 8 in wide,5 in thick and 8 ft long, there is about a 1/2 in between each block, so the water does stay cooler being shaded like it is. The slurry pit was never used, that is as far as they build before they sold to me. I would like to put fish in, what would be good, I live in Mich. and like trout, walleye, perch, would these do well? What would I need as far as equipment to run this?

Check with your county agent for info about fishfarming. I know the Univ of Wi Extension had some literature on the subject.
