We are currently growing tilapia, but the system is compatible with catfish, perch, trout, bass or shrimp. Fish can typically be harvested in 9-10 months.
Our aquaponic system has two different styles of plant growth. The float bed allows plants to float directly in the water. The media bed has expanded clay pebbles that allows rooting structure for larger plant material like peppers and tomatoes.
Our farmers plant vegetables and herbs in the beds. The growing process from seed to harvest can be as quick as 5-8 weeks for some leafy crops. Many crops perform well in this system.
