Practical Aquaponics Course

Practical Aquaponics Course | Wellington Aquaponics | Scoop.it

On the 24th March, Japan Aquaponics will be holding a 1 day, hands-on, Practical Aquaponics Course for anyone interested in learning about aquaponics, or thinking about setting up their own aquaponics system.

 

The course will be very hands-on as we will break down one existing system and will replace it with a new hybrid system to include some DIY filters, media growbed, a raft system, and a sump.
