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..

    Commercial Fishermen are doing it tough nowadays.
    So it's a good idea to set something like this up.

    I hope it works out for him.

    Hey Milne (Fishfood)
    So ya finaly got to meet my uncle Rob and see his setup... Not bad hey? Last time I saw it he hadn't realy finished the larger shed. He had the smaller one goin though. I just want to see it all finished and running with fish and plants etc... He is in the deep sea fishing industry but I reckon he'll move all his attention over to this AP game once he really gets it all happening... good to hear that you got to meet him finally and see his progress. I knew he'd be happy to show you around. Reckon I should leave my job and just go work with Rob on the mega AP system!!!
