Aquaculture & Aquaponics
Create sustainable water-based systems. Learn about the history, aquatic plant and animal relationships, guilds, system design needs and more
This lecture is offered to paid participants of the 2013 Eco-Apprentices: Permaculture Design Course. Due to remarkable response to this program, we have had to close this lecture to the public as we are beyond capacity.
Aquaculture is a fascinating farming system that can be used to raise fish, crustaceans and other animals in a tank. Similarly, an aquaponics system is used to raise plants. Together, these systems can provide us with sustainably raised plant and animals foods for generations to come! Join us for this lecture to learn more about these systems, their unique history, design needs, plant and animal guilds, components to a healthy system and more.
With our ever increasing population and matching appetite, especially for seafood, our methods of food production must evolve to meet our needs. The only way to meet this need is with farming using aquaculture systems. With a healthy system, we can do this right in our own backyards. Learn how in this lecture.
