Description

Aquaponic farming — raising fish and vegetables together commercially — is the most promising innovation for a sustainable, profitable, localized food system. Until now, systems have largely focussed on warm-water fish such as tilapia. A lack of reliable information for raising fish and vegetables in the cool climates of North America and Europe has been a major stumbling block.

The Aquaponic Farmer is the game changer.

Built around a proven 120' greenhouse system operable by one person, the book distills vast experience and complete step-by-step guidance for starting and running a cold-water aquaponics business. Coverage includes:

  • A primer on cold-water aquaponics
  • Pros and cons of different systems
  • Complete design and construction of a Deep Water Culture system
  • Recommended and optional equipment and tools
  • System management, standard operating procedures, and maintenance checklists
  • Maximizing fish and veg production
  • Strategies for successful sales and marketing of fish and plants

As the only comprehensive commercial cold-water resource, The Aquaponic Farmer is essential for farmers contemplating the aquaponics market, aquaponic gardeners looking to go commercial, and anyone focused on high quality food production.
