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.

An informational video about Aquaponics, the practice of combining fish farming and hyrdoponics. The video is really well put together and clearly shows the necessities of aquaponics. Well recommended!
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.

Although gardening may not seem typical of an urban teenager’s education, it has become a central experience for many students across the country. See how one teacher in Harlem has changed the lives of her students forever.
Will Allen and Growing Power in Milwaukee, WI are pioneering the use of aquaponics in inner city areas to help regrow an interest in food sustainability and to ensure fresh food produce for those who may not otherwise be able to afford it. This video is well worth checking out.
This article is about DIY aquaponics information for anyone wanting to design and build their own aquaponics systems. This guide is about more specific aquaponics plumbing components that are commonly used.
This is the latest in the DIY Aquaponics Guides series from Japan Aquaponics. This installment helps to demistify the Bell Siphon and the Loop Siphon that are commonly used in aquaponics. We have also included a downloadable PDF guide that is easier to read to print out.
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.
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?
This is not actually aquaponics but I thought it was very interesting and shows a great example of the direction that we need to go in. Micro-Farm production in any and all available spaces in order to localise food production and to better ensure food security for all of us.
Below New York City’s skyscrapers, 8-foot tall okra plants tower over an impressive array of vegetables, herbs and flowers growing on a rooftop farm situated just 100-feet from the kitchen of Riverpark Restaurant.
