Larry Ellison plans to grow food on Lanai through aquaponics, hydroponics - Pacific Business News

Larry Ellison plans to grow food on Lanai through aquaponics, hydroponics - Pacific Business News | Aquaponics World View | Scoop.it
The first phase of the project would be located in Palawai Basin at the former piggery site and include four greenhouses as well as about a half-acre of bio-beds to grow enough produce to supply residents and the hotels. It is scheduled to get going this summer, according to Pulama Lanai, the operational entity owned by the billionaire tech titan.
Jim Hall's insight:
Spoke to people on Lanai about aquaponics and a co-worker was even doing some, before Ellison bought the island. I figured it was a matter of time and I'm glad to see he's moving ahead with it. I still would like to see it being done on a backyard scale as I did it on Maui. Great for the water situation on Lanai.

Aleece Landis's comment, November 30, 2013 9:52 AM
Really need to define what "every Vegetable needed year round for a family of 4 means." Are we really talking every bit of vegetable product a family of 4 eats in a year, if that is what you think then think again (No way this system can possibly provide 100% of plant derived calories for even one person let alone a family of 4, you would need acres to provide enough grain, beans and root crops to provide a family of 4 100% of their diet.) This might provide year round fresh veggies and salad for a family of 4 if they eat a rather average diet and live in a region or provide an environment where they can really grow those crops all year round.

When Kreg Boudro wants to feed his spinach, he throws a cup of pellets into a tank full of tilapia. Hundreds of fish churn to the surface, pale sides flashing in the dim light of the shed. “They’re always moving,” says Kreg. “The constant motion makes sure their waste stays suspended.” He and wife Angie own Rock Field Farms, the first aquaponic farm in Jackson County. As in hydroponic farming, plants grow without soil; instead, roots feed directly into nutrient-rich water. What distinguishes aquaponics is the symbiotic relationship between fish and plants.

A College Student Has Figured Out How To Grow Food Using Your Old Fish Tank What started out as a mishmosh of Tupperware containers, cardboard, and Duct tape is now a functioning system of pipes, drains, and plastic that turns a standard fish tank...
Jim Hall's insight:
From my experience, like many others, these systems are esthetic, but don't produce much in the way of plants, the idea of fish being an alternate source of protein is substituted for ornamental fish and the structure require timers and electric pumps to operate, as opposed to the use of air pumps to move water at a lower cost, which is less likely to plug up and burn out and produce a realistic amount of food as a backyard system that uses food fish, more grow area and cost efficient air pump for aeration and water movement.

Sunday Morning Garden Chat: Aquaponics » Balloon Juice | Aquaponics World View | Scoop.it
First a thumbnail sketch of aquaponics (AQ) in general and as practiced in the above pictured greenhouse. AQ is the process of growing plants in water like hydroponics but the fertilizer is (mostly) provided by fish who live in the water used to flood the plants. It is, at it’s heart, a symbiotic relationship wherein the plants feed from the fishes’ effluent which cleans the water that is returned to the fish who then, frankly, shit in it again. Fish gotta do what fish gotta do. The good news is that fish poo is just about the best poo you can use for plant food.
