I became interested in aquaponics when I read the NYTimes article. About a day later, a friend sent me an email about an organization that was looking for ideas for non-profits. I showed up and started talking about aquaponics and they were intrigued.
So, basically I don't know anything about aquaponics but would like to try to get some projects together in the New York area.
Could I ask you guys some questions?
1) about how much would it take to get started with a very basic system? just a prototype basically? I guess we could buy a system. If we wanted to build it how many people hours and how much expertise would we need?
2) how long does it take to get going? One possible site is a kids camp. Could we have anything going by August?
3) what do you do with your fish? Do you kill and fillet them yourselves? We would like to give all the food to poor people in the New York area.
