After that initial drama, we got on with some fishing! I managed to catch two snapper and a few others that had to go back. My husband caught at least seven keepers, plus a huge tuna. When we got off the boat, we loaded all the fish into our esky and covered them with ice.

This was good practice as our next project is aqauponics! This is a cross between hydroponics and aquaculture, where the fish waste feeds the plants and the plants clean the water for the fish. We has ordered a small kit from Practical Aquaponics, and it will arrive soon. Now we just have to organise a greenhouse and some little fishies.......
Do you get seasick? Any good at fishing? Have you tried aquaponics?
