Aquaponics is the method of combining aquaculture and hydroponics to grow both fish and vegetables in the same system.

With more emphasis being placed on sustainable practices, aquaponics is a great way of producing healthy food with significantly less water usage and without the need for fertilisers.

Areas covered will include: System components and design, water quality monitoring and maintenance, fish selection, handling and health, growout systems, profitability and potential pitfalls of aquaponics, commercial systems, greenhouse designs and low energy systems.

A tour of one of the largest hatcheries in Australia is included and people wanting to purchase and take away Barramundi or Black Bream fingerlings may be possible.
