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~
Nualgi is a nanonutrient mixture which triggers growth of diatom algae which acts as the first link in maintaining diatoms-zooplankton-fish food web. Diatoms are the best sequesters of co2 and in-turn they release huge amount of o2 which helps in maintaining DO levels in ponds. Diatoms also utilize ammonia as an N source during its growth so it removes ammonia from ponds. Diatoms helps in maintaining the nutrient levels mainly N:P ratio as close to redfield ratio there by helps in control of bluegreen (BGA)algae in ponds. so by adding Nualgi which triggers growth of only Diatoms we can eradicate main problems like DO,Ammonia and BGA.
Fish are getting used to a high carb diet, rather than one based on by-catch.
Charlie Dare's insight:
Great rersearch especially if you could grow your own food and make pellets on farm..then smoke and cryopack...optimising return.Trout require higher Oxygen than many Australian natives.Maybe same feed regimes could be applied to Silver or Jadfe Perch with highest omega oil content of all fish an added salebility point.
Maximizing Efficiency of Greenhouses using Aquaponics, a research team at the University of Maryland, identified this as one of the most pressing issues facing our generation. Our fourteen member team decided to focus on aquaponics: a sustainable, organic, and efficient method of agriculture rising in recognition. Our goal is to construct an affordable, modular greenhouse system integrating hydroponics and aquaculture~
Working together with the University of Tasmania our researchers have developed new bio-sensors that can measure environmental and biological data including the heartbeat of an oyster.
Charlie Dare's insight:
There were two key design considerations when developing this hardware; it should have a high flexibility in terms of the types of sensors that can be connected, and, it should be easy for other people to reproduce the hardware for their own uses. The first of these nodes has been used to provide images from underwater cameras to the sensor cloud. Further deployments will provide environmental sensor data (Water Temperature, and salinity, dissolved oxygen, pH, chlorophyll) and biosensors data in real-time to farmers.
Future work will involve extending and applying these techniques into Tasmania’s salmon industry.
Maritime fishermen remain in port to protest rock-bottom lobster prices 680 News But there appears to be little movement on either side of the dispute, with processors arguing they can't afford to pay more for a product that is seeing uncertain...
People have asked me to write a book about aquaponics. I need funding if I am going to take enough time off of work to do it. Kickstarter Aquaponics In a Nutshell by the Aquaponics Nutcase, TCLynx by Aleece B. Landis (aka TCLynx) Please pardon my poor video skills (perhaps if this project goes well my next one will have to include hiring some one to do the videos.) I'm Aleece B. Landis and I'm addicted to Aquaponics. I'm perhaps better known as TCLynx online and I've been quite active over the past several years on several online aquaponics sites. I got into aquaponics on a backyard scale back in 2007 and have ample backyard aquaponics experience to go along with my technical skills so in the past couple years I have gone on to start teaching plumbing and system design/layout skills for home scale aquaponics. Last year I bought a farm and we moved the aquaponics last summer. In the book I hope to produce I will be explaining how these different types of systems work and why and how you can do it for yourself. I've had people urge me to write a book about aquaponics in the past but I could never afford to take enough time off from work to write it. So now that Kickstarter is available, Perhaps I can make it happen. "Aquaponics In a Nutshell by the Aquaponic Nutcase TCLynx" is to be a basic aquaponics quick reference manual for those who want to grow food in their own backyard (basement, balcony, greenhouse etc) to help feed themselves and family.
Aleece you are a great communicator.You came to my attention via Murray Hallam some time ago.Your Comments on LinkedIn are always constructive and your not intimidated by peer group pressure from owners of the group.I for one would be glad to donate to Kickstarter if it helps you in any way.Also most certainly would buy your book as I know you`ve kept abreast of the latest advances.A provocative pun intended but never mind if you miss it.I still love your expertise and assume you`ve read others like Nelson &Pades and others~ all the best.
These wonderful mushrooms and many others can be profitably grown in an affordable modular unit. The HTMGS employs a monitoring and control system that senses light levels, humidity, PH levels, temperature, air exchange rates. The system also provides for feedback and self adjust various key elements like, light, temperature, and humidity. Application of these modern production and food growing methods are creating a revolution in the ability of small farmers to produce a wide range of healthy nutritious mushrooms. Presently we plan to offer Oysters Mushrooms (several different species) we can grow almost any of the popular like Bottons, Portabello, Shitake, and Morels among others.
Aquaculture And Aquaponics How To Resources. With a combination of hydroponics and aquaculture, a new method of farming is emerging. Aquaculture involves the raising of fish in artificial environments including man ...
With the concern for producing more organic and sustainable food, one of the hottest trends is aquaponic gardening. Tune in to learn more about aquaponics. (RT @KitchenCoaches: How exactly does aquaponics work?
Great to see another start up in South Australia.Their is a commercial Aquaponics business in the Riverland also.I certainly think the Kangaroo Island venture will be an added Tourist attraction and is fitting for an extra clean green industry~ all the best.
