New Boston man to share his aquaponics expertise By BARBARA TAORMINA Union Leader Correspondent Published Sep 17, 2013 at 3:00 am (Updated Sep 16, 2013)

New Boston man to share his aquaponics expertise  By BARBARA TAORMINA Union Leader Correspondent Published Sep 17, 2013 at 3:00 am (Updated Sep 16, 2013) | Aquaponics World View | Scoop.it
Boston resident Mike Griffin decided a few years ago to try to use a small goldfish pond in his yard to grow some vegetables. Griffin, who had decades of experience in the construction industry, built a greenhouse with gravity pipes that carried nutrient-rich water from the pond. Plants were placed in holes on top of the pipes with their roots stretching down into the water where they were able to feed on the continual stream of fish waste. The piping system then carried clean water back to the pond.

Jim Hall's insight:

Adding an Aquaponics system to a normal farming system can be a challenge since they really are two different ways of farming. Max Meyers, who will be speaking again at the Aquaponics Association meeting this year in Tucson is amazing at making them all work together and avoiding waste products. The ultimate in sustainable farms.

Venture aims to be world’s largest aquaponics farm – From the Santa Cruz Sentinel

Venture aims to be world’s largest aquaponics farm – From the Santa Cruz Sentinel | Aquaponics World View | Scoop.it
By Donna Jones WATSONVILLE — Hundreds of native sturgeon, the largest no more than six-inches long, swim inside a 305-gallon barrel in a greenhouse on Coward Road. The water, containing their waste, is pumped out and through a series of biological filters before flowing into long troughs upon which float rafts of leafy greens. The plants’ roots dangle into the water, feeding on the nutrients generated by the fish waste and cleaning the water for circulation back into the fish tank. This is Viridis Aquaponics, a Pajaro Valley start-up with global ambitions.

The interesting point to focus on as Aquaponics systems grow in size is the high inputs of automation.You can scale down from an automated Aquaponics/hydroponics system BUT you cant scale up from a hobby system seems to be the current thinking by professional growers.
