Edmonton Aquaponics - Project Our PROJECT will look something like the image to the right. Based on the CDC South model it will consist of 4 fish rearing tanks, another series of tanks for solids management, pumps and plumbing, and a raft tank for growing the veggies and herbs. The space is a south facing room with glazing on the south and west walls. It is located within the City of Edmonton's ACT Aquatic and Recreation Center at Rundle Park. There will be an opportunity to utilize some of the room for vermicomposting, seedling propogation, and water quality monitoring.

Floating Raft System I've finally added floating rafts to my aquaponics system - pics and video below. The basic setup consists of three 525-liter capacity beds, each with a fitted styrofoam sheet on top with holes for 18 plants on each raft: Water is continually pumped from the Sump (CHOP Mark II setup) to the fish tank, the two large gravel grow beds and to the floating raft system. The fish tank is fitted with an overflow pipe that continuously sends water through to to a Swirl Filter, and from there to the Sump.

Aquaponics A small, portable aquaponics system. The term aquaponics is a portmanteau of the terms aquaculture and hydroponic agriculture. Aquaponics (/ˈækwəˈpɒnᵻks/) refers to any system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In normal aquaculture, excretions from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity. Aquaponics Library Would you like to make this site your homepage?

Friendly Aquaponics, Inc. Which Aquaponic System For You?

A nonprofit organization to develop and teach sustainable ways to grow food. The GP 5 Gallon UV Water Sterilizer was designed by Garden Pool’s Dennis McClung for the Garden Pool Haiti project to help provide clean water for the volunteers, patients and nearby residents of the Naturopath’s Without Borders‘ volunteer medical clinic in Haiti. Clean water is very important as Cholera has contaminated the local water sources at the GP Haiti site. The Garden Pool Haiti project will not only bring sustainable food, medicinal herbs, and electricity to the medical clinic, it will also bring a new and easy to use water sterilization technology. This technology is modular, clinically effective, and easily replicable. UVC Germicidal Sterilization uses 20,000 times less energy than boiling water, is safe, leaves no taste, and uses no chemicals! This device was intended to sterilize clear, pre-filtered water only.

Aquaponics A recent Treehugger article alerted me to the fact that the folks at Growing Power are involved in what sounds to be a very exciting new proposed project in Milwaukee, called The Urban Agriculture Center. The planned center will apparently feature a 150,000-sq ft indoor aquaculture/agriculture facility combined with educational facilities, sustainable farming exhibits, a restaurant and fish market. As the author of the Treehugger article points out, the Urban Agriculture Center website is somewhat confusing, so it is quite challenging trying to find pertinent information regarding the status of the project. Nevertheless, this is certainly very exciting news, and something I look forward to following as it develops.
