Description

Aquaponic farming―raising fish and vegetables together commercially―is the most promising innovation for a sustainable, profitable, localized food system. Until now, systems have in large part focused on warm-water fish such as tilapia. A loss of reliable information for raising fish and vegetables in the cool climates of North The united states and Europe has been a big 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
• Beneficial 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 very important for farmers contemplating the aquaponics market, aquaponics gardeners having a look to go commercial, and any person focused on top 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’s co-founder of Raincoast Aquaponics and lives in Nanaimo, BC.
