Written by The School of Aquaponics

We are here to push the movement of aquaponics in a forward direction. Our primary focus is help you in your adventure with aquaponics by providing you with the highest level of information. Aquaponics is still in its infancy and we predict that it will be the go to method of farming by many families and urban farmers. Our job is to ensure that they are taught correctly.

  1. I used to work at the Columbus zoo. There is a poo truck that picks up all of the poo and people pay big bucks for that exotic compost. They must really like the taste of elephant shit!

  2. I tasted cucumbers that had a strong fish aroma. I'm not saying it's related 100% to aquaponics or fish based fertilizer, just saying it happened a couple times. I'm in Canada.

  3. This is one reason often why garden or aquaponics produce tastes superior to commercial produce.

    With the exception of some hydroponics; most stick to just a couple nutrients (NPK) and leave out micronutrients that give produce their flavor. Some completely forego taste altogether by using synthetic nutrients, just for production quantity (not quality).

    There's also the fact of packaging, handling, shipping and pesticides. Most store produce is picked and packaged before ripening so that it can endure the days of shipping times and shelf life. Further, add in the use of chemicals for pest and disease control.

    Just think of how many employees forego washing their hands after using the restroom and then handle your food. Not everyone can be monitored every minute of every day, regardless of safety protocols.

    If all of that doesn't sound scary enough, there's the other side of the same coin about GMOs, which is suppose to improve production because of disease and pest resistance and quantity. Although I could be wrong, I can't remember the last time a GMO was about improving the quality (except for those that attempt to add new nutrients).

    I prefer to grow heirloom and hybrids (not the same as GMO; it happens in nature!) in a controlled environment and forego anything that even has the remote possibility of harm to my body. Skeptics of GMOs list DNA mutations, increased risk of diseases, and increased risk of virus and bacteria strains that are resistant to the same modifications just made. Ultimately creating super viruses, bacteria, and pests.

    There's simply not enough scientific evidence for me to support GMOs. Think of all of the times when society made a new scientific breakthrough and realized something was horrible for us! Long ago, they used to add gold and lead to food for various reasons. I believe lead was added as a sweetener and gold was a delicacy that was suppose to improve immune systems (ironic, right?).

  4. may I offer my two cents:
    all plants can only take up nutrients in element form. once fish waste is being mineralised into element form, no fish taste will remain. for same reason, you eat vegetable grow on cow or pig or sheep or horse manure, you can taste cow, pig, sheep or horse.
