Who are you working with at Rutgers, i might know them. I am on the Board of Managers for Rutgers. Are you planning to do the fish in a barn? Cumberland County College had an aquaculture barn program several years ago, but abandoned it do to the high cost of heating the water (they made the mistake of putting their bio-filter outside). I do hydroponics in a greenhouse, but have not found a fish to use. I have looked at Arctic Char since their water temp requirements are about 55 degrees and our ground water is 57.
