Weather and Mysterious Fish Deaths

I would like to expand on the earlier post about flow rates for oxygen requirement in aquaculture and aquaponic fish tanks.  In the article “Oxygen, Water Flow and Your Fish” I included reference to atmospheric pressure and showed how a drop in air pressure, such as a low press...Read More

Oxygen Water Flow and Fish

The water flow in aquaculture, aquaponics or any aquatic system which requires oxygen for metabolism and catabolism is one of the most important parts of system design, next to water temperature. Water temperature effects in aquaculture will be discussed in a later article. In this article...Read More

Water Flow At Basin View Integrated Garden

Releasing the water flows to the Basin View Integrated Garden,  I wanted to example you do not need to be entrenched in the current beliefs of how to set up an aquaponic integrated garden.  In the backyard the possibilities are huge and the more I look into it, possibly endless.  It is my ...Read More
