What kinds of fish can you grow on a trellis? Fresh or saltwater?

Agreed SR ... cukes do not need much coaching to climb a trellis.

As for the fish on a trellis, well I expect the fish would get pretty smelly after a few days in the sun. Then again it could be used for fertilizing the plants.  My father in law used to put dead fish around his rose bushes and other flowering plants.

Oh no ... I noticed that the guy looks to be a row gardener. That is anathema on this SFG forum.

My tablet won't let me watch the videos so I'm STILL trying to figure out why there are fish on a trellis.

Edit:  Okay, I finally watched the long videos.  He topped with a lot of cow manure, so why the fish? Each one could have been 3 min.  For row gardeners, they are doing good.

They use the fish as a fertilizer when planting. When they catch undesirable fish they freeze them till planting time. Old indian trick.

yea, the fish trick. it reminded me  from childhood what we learn about Thanksgiving and how the American Indians use fish as a fertilizer for corn. I believe that's correct. don't quote me on it.

One thing is certain ... there is no way I am going to put whole dead fish or dead fish parts in my Mel's Mix.
