Amsterdam-based cultural institution Mediamatic has started a collective for aquaponics. The group is rich with information and resources. They run regular workshops with updates on their blog. Locals can take part in running the system on-site, or learn how to build their own. Similar groups have sprung up like Growing Power in the US. These collectives help to increase public awareness and expand the knowledge base for aquaponics.

Herbert-Fort, a former graduate student at the University of Arizona and longtime farmer and research scientist, created Local Roots Aquaponics about a year ago, with the intention of producing food, “sustainably and locally, using the safest and most natural material possible.” By replacing traditional mined fertilizer with lava rock from northern Arizona, reusing food-grade plastics for containment systems and implementing a water recirculation system that drastically reduces the amount of water wasted in desert climates, Herbert-Fort uses a system of farming known as aquaponics, “to produce the purest food, locally.”
