FISH FARMER

FISH FARMER

 Fancy the fine fish farmer,

Whether in seas or ponds inland…

Think of the tons of fish food

Such farming may demand.

Enough to keep a railroad

(One runs in Mississippi this way)…

Hauling fish food in big hoppers—

For carp to eat, all day.

Other lower-key operations

Use the food on hand…

Turning a tidy profit

With resources from the land.

Protein helps us stay healthy

Building up muscle ¬†and nerves…

Fish farmers make it possible

To improve human growth curves!
