Design and building a community garden that is successful takes more than just one man. We acknowledge the hard work of all involved in this aquaponic garden.
Earthan Group is a great aquaponics company based in Australia that is really doing some fantastic aquaponic work. This project was a therapeutic community garden - and it really is a great model for othes to follow.
Fantastic, absolutely brilliant when we see the younger generation getting involved with innovations like aquaponics and taking issues of food security seriously.
"In this week’s episode of Food Makers on Nov. 28 at 2pm PST/ 5pm EST, I’ll be talking to Pierre Beauchamp, a young entrepreneur who is making a name for himself in aquaponics. Watch the episode here on Google+."
Fish feed has undergone a major transformation in the last 10 years. Pictured is a plant-derived trial feed produced by the APC for rainbow trout. Norwegian researchers have been leading an international effort to make aquaculture more sustainable. In 10 years they have revolutionised fish feed.
The Aquaculture Protein Centre (APC) was among the initial 13 Norwegian Centres of Excellence (SFF) established. After ten years, its activities as an SFF centre are now drawing to a close. The centre was established to generate the knowledge needed to be able to replace fishmeal in aquaculture feeds.
After ten years, the proportion of fish-based ingredients has been reduced to roughly ten per cent, while fish farmers have doubled their production.

Wellington Aquaponics's insight:
Urban gardening is a necessity if we are going to move to sustainability. Food must be produced where it is used.
