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~

Save The Bees! Water For Bees Without The Drowning Risk

Save The Bees! Water For Bees Without The Drowning Risk | Aquaponics~Aquaculture~Fish~Food | Scoop.it
A clean supply of water is absolutely essential for the operation of a honeybee colony. Bees use water for cooling the hive by evaporation, and for thinning honey to be fed to larva.

We never thought about them drowning. The wasps would dip and drink, which was fascinating to watch.

Kelp Forests Might Be the Key to Feeding the Planet

Kelp Forests Might Be the Key to Feeding the Planet | Aquaponics~Aquaculture~Fish~Food | Scoop.it
With just under four acres of ocean, kelp farmers can average about 200,000 pounds of mussels and 500 pounds of dried kelp each year.
Charlie Dare's insight:
Interesting new idea has possibilities for the future. Sea weed has long been a part of the diet of some cultures.I love mussels too they mainly come from New Zealand here in South Australia.King Island  between Tasmania and the mainland has a Kelp gathering business that gathers washed up Kelp from storms but I,m not familiar with it.There are many types and more research needs to be done with best types to propagate here ~

Exploring the Challenge of First-Feeding European Eels in Captivity

Exploring the Challenge of First-Feeding European Eels in Captivity | Aquaponics~Aquaculture~Fish~Food | Scoop.it
DENMARK - Rearing European eels in captivity throughout their life cycle in a complex task, hampered by our lack of knowledge about several phases of their life cycle.
Charlie Dare's insight:
Smoked eels are a very popular delicacy in Australia and many countries.Like yabbies their grow out ponds need to be fenced as they slither away from ponds overnight in wet grass to the nearest river.I visited a grow out business south of Coffs Harbour once and the owner had been to China adopting some of their growing methods.Sieving them a fine mash "secret recipe" that looked to consist of fish pellets with a few additives in to their tanks before release later bigger in to his fenced ponds on banks of the Bellingen river.Fed again a high protein pellet for carnivores~The elvers were netted at river mouths at certain times of the year.I understood the Japanese had completed the life cycle in captivity and had big grow out facilities in warm water outlets from power stations.

Charlie Dare's insight:
I am including this post to demonstrate the extra growth potential going vertical and other interesting Videos on their site.I have a contact friend Graham Dunning that earlier invented a water wheel vertical garden principle that is trays plants upright circulating on a triangular design where nutrients are added at top 1pm of the downward cycle drained at bottom saving energy for upward part of the cycle.The plants remain vertical upright for the complete cycle eliminating this kind of tangle of tomatoes and crowding others, blocking light with or without artificial lighting much cheaper.He is a commercial grower that like with another commercial engineer and innovative grower I know Paul Van der Werf~Both have separate past and present successful large scale commercial past projects in the Middle East and other places internationally.

The classical working principle of aquaponics is to provide nutrient-rich aquacultural water to a hydroponic plant culture unit, which in turn depurates the water that is returned to the aquaculture tanks.

Backyard Aquaponics Made from 100% Plywood without Liner

Charlie Dare's insight:
If you are handy, you can build your own tank out of plywood using sealants and/or a pond liner. You can get creative with materials and with designs. John Kohler, of Growing Your Greens, gives us a walkthrough on a sweet DIY fish tank on his Youtube channel. This tank was built using just 2x4 lumber and a special seamless coating. Tune in at minute 15:30 to get right to the DIY goodness. There may be a size limit to how big you can build using your own materials. You may choose a long, trough like design to help keep things manageable. The difficulty is to build a large enough tank while eliminating leaks and weak points.

Marine Microalgae: Food and Fuel of the Future

Marine Microalgae: Food and Fuel of the Future | Aquaponics~Aquaculture~Fish~Food | Scoop.it
Researchers from the Cornell Algal Biofuel Consortium have just promoted a new ingredient in the battle against global warming as well as food and energy insecurity: marine microalgae.
Charlie Dare's insight:
Scientists harvest freshly grown microalgae and remove most of the water then extract the lipids for the fuel. The remaining defatted biomass is a protein-rich and highly nutritious byproduct that can be added to feeds for domesticated farm animals, like chickens and pigs, or aquacultured animals, like salmon and shrimp. It could also, potentially, be consumed by humans.

Charlie Dare's insight:
This field is evovlving fast ~"Vertical agriculture is a modern way of cultivating crops where the space is less and growing of the crop is under the controlled environment. In the vertical farming, food is grown in vertical stacked layers, vertically inclined surfaces or integrated in other structures and it is trending as a part of urban agriculture. The advantages of vertical farming is increased crop production, organic crops, energy production, protection from weather-related problems, conservation of resources and need of less area etc. with basic technological requirement of artificial lighting, climate control and thus boosting the Vertical Farming Market scope..."

Charlie Dare's insight:
As I,ve mentioned several times I do not promote one Aquaponics proponent over another as  many of them arn,t commercial growers but derive income from selling educational workshops and products they source and mark up like the vertical towers these guys sell ~ A guy on YouTube was saying they are fence post covers before re-branded and marked up and he was threatened with legal action for letting the cat out of the bag.Hence I wont antagonize them further by giving the YouTube link.However Bright Agrotech has a new product this water cooled LED light bar which is a worthy innovation for inclusion for my readers interest.
