Yesterday, the Homesteading/Survivalism Facebook page posted an old illustration about aquaponics using a Growing Power model - the source of the illustration was this Denver Post article from about 3 years ago http://www.denverpost.com/ci_13586527. So far, in under 24 hours, the illustration has over 5,000 likes and nearly 4,400 shares. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150968161042436&set=a....
I've attempted to send people who read the comments there here if they have questions about aquaponics, so there may be an influx of n00bs.
I agree, Jeremy. Several people have been trying to educate people about that in the comment section. A picture is worth 1000 words, but aquaponics can't be summed up in a single image. Hopefully the owners of the FB page will now do a followup post or two given the amount of response that post has gotten.

Too bad that picture showed a 60' by 5' by 13 foot deep fish tank. I don't think the average person can grasp the scalability of something like aquaponics
That is what brought me to this site. I have been researching and planing my own aquaponics set up for the last 4 days LOL.
Driving my wife crazy since that is just about all I talk about.
I think the Denver Post article is what got me interested in aquaponics. I am still a newbie but learning.
