# Merely "pumping water from the Amazon" is far different from  
collecting the waste from fish raised in a "contained" pond, and  
spreading it on the fields for the intended purpose of adding  
nutrients to the soil. It is important to know the "fish poo density"  
in the water. Obviously, 1 pound of fish poo per gallon would be  
expected to have a far more observable effect on plant growth than  
would a "fish poo density" of 1 pound per 1,000 gallons.

# I would not expect the Farmer to have had much of a problem in his  
fields with Piranhas that went through an irrigation pump. They would  
be well macerated, and would actually be a benefit to his crops.  
Macerated Piranhas would provide nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorous to  
his crops.
