Aquaponics is a food production system that combines aquaculture with hydroponics. This introductory workshop
will cover water quality, biosecurity, and plant and fish health, as well as the basic science that underlies using fish waste as fertilizer. Participants will get some hands-on experience working with CCC’s home-scale system, and get help evaluating the most appropriate aquaponics system for their needs.
