The course is designed for someone with or without the basic understanding of how aquaponics works and also for those who are looking to enhance their knowledge of the science, the operations and the design process of building an aquaponics farm, both backyard and small commercial scale. This course contains materials derived not only from the experience of running a small commercial farm but also from academic research on aquaponics conducted in the past two decades.

  • Are you looking to master the key operational techniques of aquaponics required to operate a backyard or commercial size system?

  • Get a solid understanding of how aquaponics functions and how you can master all aspects of growing in aquaponics?

  • Are you tired of searching the internet for answers in so many different places?

There are several resources on the internet that help you learn the basics of aquaponics but in this course we will dive deeper into the science behind aquaponics, how to create an optimal environment for your symbiotic ecosystem, understand fish and fish husbandry so you can produce market ready fish, plant nutrients and how to create an optimal balance so you can maximize both plant and fish growth, pest management and control so you can protect your investment and finally we will put all this newly acquired knowledge into a case study that shows you exactly how to design a small commercial size aquaponics system. The material is put together specifically with the intention to give you the information you need for the “How-To’s” of your aquaponics project and covers more than many of the 2-3 day long workshops offered for a fraction of the price.
