1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

    Good day. I am new to aquaponics but have been educating myself for six months and am ready to start a community based commercial aquaponics business. I seek guidance in terms of design and size. I plan to: 1. Grow on 280sqm of 30cm deep DWC grow beds(I may need advice on how to harvest 2000 heads of lettuce/week) 2. Harvest 416kg of Tilapia every 6 weeks Any feedback or guidance will be appreciated.

    Hi Yabbies,

    My Name is Natalia. i just starting to build my IBC aquaponics and i need hdpe liner. i see that you live in perth australia, do you know where to get hdpe or ldpe liner around here?.
    i missed your workshop. i only see it today. you going to have another one?

    thank you so much.

    kind regards,
    1. Yabbies4me
      Hi Natalia,

      It depends how much you are after. We can get pond liner in long rolls for large jobs, but we don't sell by the metre or break up rolls.

      As far as the workshops are concerned, the next will most likely be March. If you go to my Perth Aquaponics Facebook page and click "Follow", I post workshop details on there and you will get an automatic notification when I do.

    What answer do you give when out marketing products regarding potential contaminates such as E. coli? I don't recall conversation regarding this during the course. We've researched it and read that cold-blooded animals (fish) don't harbor E. coli or other typical contaminates. What have you all found?
