# 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
