Summary
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 vegetable production; and 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 sustainability, localization, or high-quality food production.--COVER
