That's the idea, its called aquaponics and it's been growing in popularity. Basically using fish waste to grow plants and using plants to clean fish water.

Ohh whoops. Hydroponics doesn't involve any fish does it. My mistake

I'm the same way about pet fish vs food fish. I can filet a fish i've caught with no problem but I couldn't imagine doing that to one of my aquarium fish.

This is something I'm learning to get over, though, in the event that I do end up growing food fish (aquaculture) at some point. It's no different than if you have farm animals that you eventually have to slaughter.
Still food fish or pet fish, some are pets and you don't eat those and some are dinner.

I had raised two farm pigs, one for 4-H the other for our freezer. It was my first time raising pigs and they were a joy to raise. They were not pets, but they were not bad company some times.

The time came and I felt like a monster. Two animals that depended on me for life were now going to die. :-( I couldn't eat the meat of the one pig, it was to difficult for me. I told myself I would never do that again and buy my meat from the super market from now on. The next year I got two pigs again, and it was easier when you learn not to name your food. :-p

No offense, but,(my sarcastic jokey tone is lost over the interwebs here) YOUR A SISSY! Ok, just kidding. But by buying meat at the store, your simply skipping the killing and butchering. That pig you couldn't bring yourself to eat was as much a living breathing thing as the pig(s) you eat the meat from at the store.

Yeah and at least you can give it a good life while you raise it. Lord knows the conditions the store pigs are kept in.

I've thought about it too, but honestly I'm a big seafood fan and I cannot live without tuna.

I don't think he's a sissy. I think he's kind. Not many people feel even a shred of guilt when slaughtering pigs.
