Aquaponics uses plants and fish in a symbiotic closed-loop system which eliminates the waste of both the hydroponic and aquaculture components. It allows production of plants and fish with minimal water use and is easily implemented on a small scale. I have a demonstration aquaponic unit that I just did a presentation on and showed at Fredericksburg, I could bring it to the meeting and set it up so that everyone can see how a simple "barrelponic" system works. I have been trained at the University of Virgin Islands St Croix in their aquaponic program, and have also received training at AquaRanch in Illinois and from the designer of the Bioshelters facility in Massachusetts. I do workshops on how to build and operate small aquaponic systems, and have assisted people in the metroplex building systems.
