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 focused 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-foot 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, aquaponics gardeners looking to go commercial, and anyone focused on high quality food production. Adrian Southern is steeped in all things aquaponic. After years of urban farming and system perfection, he co-founded Raincoast Aquaponics and raises trout and vegetables for a living in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, BC. Whelm King is a business manager, project manager, and entrepreneur who has worked in the arts, agriculture, publishing, media, and law. He is co-founder of Raincoast Aquaponics and lives in Nanaimo, BC.

Everything you need to know about building your own hydroponic garden system! Complete instruction with detailed pictures on how to build 4 different types of hydroponic systems. If you are new to hydroponics, we recommend starting with the small ebb and flow system. It is easy to build and works well both indoors or outdoors. Once you have the feel of adjusting the flood cycle, controlling the ph level you may the feel prepared for a larger MPT Tray System, NFT System or a Top Feeding System. The plans in the DIY Hydroponics Systems Builders Guide will provide you with all the information needed to build your own systems. In most cases, once you obtain the tools and materials necessary you simply follow the detailed pictures to assemble the systems. Most of the required materials can be purchased at your local home builder supply store such as Home Depot or Lowe's. You can also purchase parts and supplies online through hydroponics and garden suppliers for which we have provided a list. When using this manual, it is not necessary to follow each step and measurements precisely. Use these instructions as a guide. Be creative and flexible, adjust the plans to create your own custom system. For example, you may find a container that you believe would make a good reservoir or growing tray, but the size is not exactly the same as in the plans. Simply adjust the PVC pipes used to hold the tray to fit your container. Once you understand the basic principles, you should be able to modify and create many variations of the systems in this guide.

Aquaculture Water Reuse Systems: Engineering Design and Management

The demand for high quality aquacultured products and an increasing concern for resource conservation has led individuals and large corporations to invest time and money in commercial scale recirculating production systems. However, there are relatively few reports of profitable recirculating production systems in operation. There is little doubt that most fish reared in ponds, floating net pens, or raceways can be produced in commercial scale recirculating systems. The objective of this book is to provide basic information and analytical skills for the reader so that they may make the proper design or investment decisions concerning water reuse and recycle systems. The chapters of this book are sequenced to provide continuity to a basic approach that would be used in designing a water reuse or recycle system. The chapter authors contributing to this book have written extensively in the literature already on the particular subject being addressed in their chapter. Considerable background information on the basic processes being presented is also given in each chapter to supplement the basic design information being provided. These chapters should provide the reader with essentially all the information required in order to design and manage a water reuse system. The book is written for engineers and biologists working in the area of intensive fish culture. The text should also prove useful as a design manual for practising aquaculturists and as a resource of current "state-of-the-art" methodologies associated with water reuse systems.
