Trout Fry or Live eggs Answered

I'm looking for a place to purchase trout Fry or live eggs to start my own trout for a small aquaponic set up.
I have to 275gallon IBC to put the fishies in.
FYI i am on the central coast of Califorina.
looking for small batches, all the stuff i find online is looking for 1k eggs way to many. Unless I can salt them make caviar.
Thanks all

I don't know what 1K of fish eggs would look like but is that the recommended batch size to ensure some minimum amount will hatch?

That is just 1000 liters for those living in the metric world.
So around 1cm³ in volume - that is tiny even for small trout.
Goldfish might be happier in that size, or is is quite shallow?

Maybe call your local wildlife extension agency to see if they have any contacts or suppliers, try the aquariums or universities with a fish biology program. Good luck.
