    Default How to start a Pearl Farm

    A Layman's Guide.

    From Kari's Pearls, a treatise by Maria Haws.

    I see this is from 2002, so maybe we already have it listed.

    Since I seem to have mastered ant farming (those pesky critters come into my house every spring) maybe I can master pearl farming too! Somehow, though I think this actually much more difficult than an ant farm!

    I stickied it, since there was only one other stickied thread in Pearl Farming.

    Oh wow! Look what I found! I was browsing, looking for Pearl Farming for Landlubbers, or something. I'm bumping it, because we have so many new people. I'd forgotten so much of the article, it's a good refresher.

    I was thinking about pearl farming, several ideas, location, species, technics and also species preservations by farming, but would need partners (EU).
