Researchers from three schools– Johns Hopkins University, University of Maryland and West Virginia University – are combining forces to conduct the largest survey of the aquaponics field. The survey will collect critical information about production methods and community engagement among aquaponics hobbyists, educators, farmers and companies. The responses will help contribute to a better understanding of this growing field.
This confidential online survey takes about 15 minutes to complete, and survey respondents can enter a lottery to win one of four $75 Amazon gift certificates. The research team is encouraging individuals to take the survey and share it with others in the aquaponics community.
The survey can be accessed here: www.jhsph.edu/clf/survey_aquaponics.html
Questions or comments can be directed to Dr. Dave Love, Assistant Scientist at the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (firstname.lastname@example.org).
