My lovely wife and I have raised chickens (60+) and rabbits to eat and make a hat from and still have a rabbit.
We made chicken tractor out of repurpose wood, pvc we got at home depot as with chicken wire, tin for the roof was a gift to for eggs.

We live in Chehalis WA,    

Looking to start a fish farm with I C B totes powered by the sun.

That sounds like a great idea.
I learnt by watching others, reading books, experimenting and now videos.
Maybe think about a few things you feel you want and start making notes.
The choices area million fold, but starting to dream now may help you sort the million things down to something practical for you both.
I have seen aquaculture mixed with ducks and vegetables and herbs.
