    If you're interested in fish, freshwater shrimp, crawfish, etc., aquanic.org is a good site. Lots of info! :)

    Depending where you live you could raise tropical fish.

    This is an international organization sort of set up like the Peace Corps. I'm sure they have some information that can help you.

    http://www.vita.org/

    Also do a search of Cowgirlone's efforts for freshwater shrimp farming. She and others posted some great websites for aquaponic farming.

    Good luck with your venture.

    For info on small scale hydro-electricity do a google search on "microhydro" (naturally, I guess). When you've got some ideas, run another search, this one on "homemade microhydro".
