Murray Hallam's Practical Aquaponics

Murray Hallam
Giulio Andreini's insight:

Intervista a Murray Hallam sull'acquaponica commerciale (e sui corsi che tiene in Australia). Ho qualche dubbio sul fatto che con 20.000 $ sia possibile fare un impianto che rende dai 500 ai 1.000 $ al mese. Probabile che le verdure in Australia costino molto di più che qui da noi?

Can commercial aquaponics be profitable? Green Acre Aquaponics says yes!
Giulio Andreini's insight:

An interesting article of Gina Cavaliero of Gren Acre Aquaponics about going commercial.

 

It's interesting what she says:

"It’s not that the farm is unsuccessful or not profitable right now but its simply not large enough yet to produce enough revenue to support two individuals entirely."

Commercial Aquaponics in Hawaii | Kunia Country Farms

Giulio Andreini's insight:

A nice presentation about commercial aquaponica in Hawaii.
Very interesting when it says:

 

Decision Point
• Stay small – more than a hobby but less than a
business
– Farmers Markets, small restaurants, CSAs
– Low labor (you) and low energy (coolers)

 

• Be Big!
– Must be competitive with mainland plus shipping
– Lots of initial capital
– Grow slowly and methodically – big mistakes cost big
money
– The key is SCALE!

Friendly Aquaponics: from lettuce to some new crops

Friendly Aquaponics: from lettuce to some new crops | Commercial Aquaponics | Scoop.it

For most of this last year, each hole in our farm's systems produced 10.4 heads of lettuce per year. If each lettuce weighs .12 lb (we harvest them rather small, and average about 4 pounds from a 2-foot by 4-foot raft with 32 holes), then in one year, each hole produces a total of 1.25#. We were earning $5.92 from Costco per pound, so at this production level, each hole in the system would be worth $7.40 per year. And in normal operation we would have had 18,000 holes in operation producing a total of 22,500 pounds of lettuce, for a total of $133,200 per year.

An interesting article from Susanne and Tim of Friendly Aquaponics Hawaii
