Conversion rate is supposed to be 2:1 using dry feed for these fish. (Wild natural feed is at least a 10:1 ratio due to the water content). Can't verify that. Feed is now a little over a dollar a pound. So a 5 pound fish over 7 years took 10 lbs. of feed or somewhere over $10.00? I'm sure they feed on bluegills and yellow perch that are also in the pond.

Of course there is also the cost of the fingerlings, labor, and utilities. I get $10.00 a pound for the bass.

Very cool.

It's too bad even with plenty to eat they don't grow as fast as trout. I can get a steelhead to 5 lbs. in two years while it takes 5 to 6 years to do that with a largemouth (it takes longer with wild fish). The feed trained largemouth grow uo to 2 1/2 pounds really fast and then they slow down quite a bit.

Really pretty fish !

Really cool fish glad to see all the ones you grow amd learn the difference between the wild growth and your fish.
