Herefordshire Hydro

 
 

Today's BBC Radio 4 Food programme says that we should eat more fish.  Here is an opportunity for all microhydro sites with a holding pond. raise fish in it, and possible make more income than from the hydropower ?? One can raise twice the amount of food from an acre of water than one can from an acre of land.
This is an old technique, in 1066 Harold King of England had an eel fishery at his water mill at Murch Marcle in Herefordshire.  Monasteries all had fish ponds, often just outside the kitchen, full of pike. Kitchen scraps were thrown to the pike, which were then caught and eaten on Fridays. A good recyling system !!
