tZen_Farmacist's insight:

a decent introduction to aquaponics.  Highlights some indoor systems but understates their value by suggesting their use should be limited to small herb production.  Even though you wont be growing indeterminate vining tomato monsters, there's way more potential in an indoor system than that.

Colton Allen, a seventh grader at King Science and Technology Magnet Center, counts the tilapia swimming circles in the horse trough. “Eleven?” he guesses. “Twelve?” It’s difficult to say, since the “tank” of his class’ aquaponics system is solid black.

Shizuoka University Aquaponics System

Shizuoka University Aquaponics System | Aquaponics | Scoop.it

These photographs show the set up of a new indoor aquaponics system that was installed in Professor Jonathan deHaan's classroom at the University of Shizuoka - an hour's bullet train ride south of Tokyo.

 

The system was to demonstrate the principles of aquaponics to staff and students at the university, but needed to fit within a small space within Jonathan's room.

Will Allen uses aquaponics as one part of many approaches to growing sustainable food in an urban jungle.  His efforts to bring fresh food to the under-priveledged is remarkable, and inspiring.

Jim Oldfield's curator insight, May 13, 2013 10:25 AM

Will Allen is doing amazing things with aquaponics. He is a self-made leader in urban aquaponics and agriculture.

This is awesome. Aquaponics truly is art!  So many ways you can envision building a system merely by following a few basic requirements.  The rest is up to your imagination like working with paints or pencils, its the artists interpretation.  I even moreso love the fact that they are getting kids take on this booming trend in sustainability.
