This is an open group started for the tinkerers in this community.  I picked the Wright Flyer as the icon because, as we all know, the first sustained power flight for heavier than air flying machines was achieved by...................two bicycle mechanics.  I lift my hat to people like these, who have a great idea and stick to it.  I think there are many more such breakthroughs waiting in aquaponics, and for those that like to scratch under the surface, make their own components or critically evaluate aspects of aquaponic theory and practice, this open group may well be a great place to share ideas and discuss concepts without fear of ridicule or repremand.

Thanks for starting this, Kobus.  Have you sent out invites to recruit some people?  I'll put something up on the home page too.  You might want to make a copy of your original comment explaining the airplane in the text box above so it stays put at the top rather than get pushed down.  You might also want to start a few discussion topics...your specialty
