The tilapia that are the stars of the Lehigh Aquaponics project have arrived.

Kimberly Hetrick ’14, one of the four students on the team, picked them up in Carlisle last week and delivered them to Mountaintop in a bright blue bucket.

The students aim to cultivate the fish while growing plants in water. You can read more about the project in a story at the Lehigh News Center.

The team also planted the seeds for the lettuce they hope to grow.
