Event Description

Aquaponic systems are rapidly gaining attention for their environmentally friendly waste-to-food design that integrates aquaculture (fish farming) and hydroponics (soilless plant production). As the possibilities for income generation in local
economies increase, technological considerations for improving the efficiency of these systems are also becoming more important. This presentation will examine the current status of aquaponics technology, highlighting the requirements for
developing effective systems.


For the past 12 years, R. Charlie Shultz has
served as a research analyst at the Agricultural
Experiment Station at the University of the Virgin
Islands (UVI), actively involved in teaching and
research concerning aquaponics and tilapia
production. The UVI team is world renowned for
the development of the floating raft aquaponic
system and has now taught over 500 students
from 52 nations and 45 U.S. states and territories
during their annual International Aquaponics and
Tilapia Aquaculture Course.
