Tilapia Harvesting

Much harder than it looks! Interns, staff and volunteers on the ECHO Farm spent today seining two tilapia ponds, participating in the entire fish harvesting process. The net, with weights on one end and floats on the other, stretches the width of the pond to catch as many of these tasty fish as possible. Later today, interns will weigh and process the fish fillets, tracking how many pounds of fish we raised. Are you ready to get dirty? Come join us!
