Commercial aquaculture has now integrated with hydroponics to create a budding new commercial industry.I,m seeking to curate fish species suitable that get along well with this vegetable/fruit growing systems.Aeroponics is yet another branch of this new farming technology.Clean green obviously ramifications for future feeding of the planets communities~

The potential of microalgae meals in compound feeds for aquaculture | Aquaponics~Aquaculture~Fish~Food | Scoop.it
Intensive production of mainly carnivorous fish has resulted in fish feeds containing high levels of fishmeal and fish oil, with Europe requiring around 1.9 million tonnes a year.

Indoor farm taps technology to grow leafy greens

Indoor farm taps technology to grow leafy greens | Aquaponics~Aquaculture~Fish~Food | Scoop.it
Drawing from his background as an electrical engineer, Steve Fambro, founder and chief executive officer of Oceanside, Calif.-based Famgro Farms, has tried to eliminate as much variability in leafy green production as possible.
Charlie Dare's insight:

Reminds me transportable units sold to farmers for growing barley sprouted slabs of stock feed for drought survival or finishing animals condition for market.More reinventing of the wheel or its parts I suspect.

“It uses hydroponics that we have developed and patented and it uses LEDs that we manufacture and patented, but those are just parts of the story,” Fambro said. “I don’t consider this vertical farming. Our goal is so much more.” - See more at: http://www.thepacker.com/fruit-vegetable-news/Indoor-farm-taps-technology-to-grow-leafy-greens-232521831.html#sthash.wtEEM4R3.dpuf

 

I wonder what that other spinoff is ? signature sweet Kale ? Enforcing patent litigation ..being sued for using open scourced parts of new growing systems as no two locations are the same on earth.Different countries like the Dutch have optimized crop production for a long time. I guess they dont continually change patents each time there is an adjustment to lighting regimes, nutrician,temp, humidity, air flow and moisture optimizing the plants needs at different stages of growth.

PUBLICATION: A Guide to Small-Scale Marine Finfish Hatchery Technology

Recent improvements in hatchery production technology for high-value marine finfish species such as groupers have led to an increased interest in setting up hatcheries to produce fingerlings for aquaculture. Small-scale hatcheries make this technology available to poor people in developing countries. Capital costs for small-scale hatcheries are relatively low, and the profitability of these ventures ensures rapid payback of capital investment.

This guide provides an outline of the requirements to establish a small-scale marine finfish hatchery, particularly the economic aspects. It is intended to provide sufficient information for potential investors to decide whether investment in such ventures is appropriate for them. The guide provides some basic technical information in order to give an indication of the level of technical expertise necessary to operate a small-scale marine finfish hatchery. However, it is not intended as a detailed technical guide to the operation of small-scale hatcheries. Additional resources, such as training courses in marine finfish hatchery production, are available and these are listed in this document.

Development of small-scale hatcheries may be more appropriate where there are existing marine hatchery operations, e.g. for shrimp or milkfish. By definition, small-scale hatcheries do not have broodstock facilities, so a supply of fertilised eggs (usually from a larger hatchery) is essential. Access to fertilised eggs and experienced hatchery staff will limit the application of small-scale hatchery technology. Despite this, there is considerable potential for this technology to be widely adopted.

This guide has been written by a team of experts in marine finfish aquaculture who have been involved in a multinational collaborative research project since 1999.

This research project, funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR), has made an important contribution to improving the sustainability of marine finfish aquaculture by improving hatchery production of high-value species, particularly groupers.

Further details of research undertaken as part of project FIS/97/73 Improved hatchery and grow-out technology for grouper aquaculture in the Asia-Pacific region are available from the project website: http://www.enaca.org/aciar/

In isolated regions aquaponics has a place in permanant community gardeningThis one is ajacent to a school and trailer park. Roads in cut off by snow at times.The concept is pretty simple: planners recreate a forest ecosystem with edible plants and trees in a public space. Then, in a deviation from most community garden models, they open it up and allow people to forage for food for free.
