Step-by-Step Introduction to Aquaponics
It's been a while since I posted on Aquaponics - or the art of combining fish farming and hydroponics in a mutually beneficial system where fish poop becomes fertilizer, and plants become filters for the fish. From Growing Power's urban aquaponics farm in Milwaukee to this roundup of backyard aquaponics videos, it's clear that the topic provokes much excitement in those looking for more sustainable ways of growing high-value food. But it's also a topic that comes steeped in mystery and its own technical jargon - which is why the Aquaponics Made Easy DVD from Aquaponics guru Murray Hallam looks set to be an instant hit. Click below the fold for more video footage on how to create an aquaponics system, as well as details on where to get your copy of the DVD. Available from Aquaponics.net.au, Murray Hallam's DVD looks like the most comprehensive guide yet on how to create your own aquaponics set up:
Murray's new "Aquaponics Made Easy DVD" will take you into the wonderful world of building and maintaining your own 1000 litre (250 gallon) tank Aquaponics system and understanding the basics of what sort of fish you need relative to your climate and location...
Murray's approach is proven as he's tested and built every method that he explains. He's still growing a variety of exotic vegetables and experimenting with fish to find the easiest and best method for the average person to use.
Here's more teaser material from the DVD. Scroll below the video for further reading about Aquaponics here at TreeHugger.
