Internet of food: Arduino-based, urban aquaponics in Oakland

Internet of food: Arduino-based, urban aquaponics in Oakland | Wellington Aquaponics | Scoop.it

The land in West Oakland where Eric Maundu is trying to farm is covered with freeways, roads, light rail and parking lots so there’s not much arable land and the soil is contaminated. So Maundu doesn’t use soil. Instead he’s growing plants using fish and circulating water.

Definitely a very visual proof of concept! I am not sure how cost-effective it would be, but to demonstrate the potential for a totally off-grid integrated aquaculture it is a great system.

DIY Radial Flow Filter for Aquaponics

DIY Radial Flow Filter for Aquaponics | Wellington Aquaponics | Scoop.it

Radial Flow Settlers are a type of filter that removes all the gunk and fish poop that occurs in a recirculated aquaponics system.  It is important to remove solid waste from aquaponics systems in order to keep your fish healthy and to allow for optimum growth in DWC or NFT systems.  In a media-based system the growbed media filters the water for us - but when using floating rafts or NFT then we need other types of filters to ensure the water is of the highest clarity, and minimal solid waste.

Aquaponics Farm in Northeast Finds Formula for Growth

Aquaponics Farm in Northeast Finds Formula for Growth | Wellington Aquaponics | Scoop.it

Interestingly, this farm is using ornamental koi as their fish stock.  This is the same as Japan Aquaponics is using at the moment because the fish have a much higer tolerance of water temperature changes during winter and summer.

 

Seven years ago, Ed Osmun and his wife scaled back their beekeeping operation in Massachusetts to build an aquaponic farm, a closed-loop farming system linking hydroponically grown vegetables and fish tanks of ornamental koi.

DIY Vertical Aquaponics on the patio.... but is it aquaponics?

DIY Vertical Aquaponics on the patio.... but is it aquaponics? | Wellington Aquaponics | Scoop.it

This is a very nice looking system that has been installed somewhere in Australia - but it does beg the question... "Is it Aquaponics?"  This system circulates the fish water through soil.... so the "ponics" part of aquaponics is... well... totally missing!  It is still a fantastic idea, but what do you think?  Is it aquaponics?
