Hello from Central Texas! I am considering getting started in aquaponics. We currently have a small raised bed garden (we live on a rock!) and are first year beekeepers. We picked up our first bees at Aquaponics & Earth in Desoto, Texas. When contemplating how to give the bees some additional water for the dry summer weather, I thought back to the aquaponics place.
So, here I am, trying to learn as much as possible.
The land of scarce water is a good place to think about it. Bernstein's book on the subject is good.
You might check out the Arizona Aquaponics group. Hot weather, no water, similar problems and issues.
