For Alajuela, near San Jose, Costa Rica check out the PVC manufacturer Durman.  They have many PVC parts including bulkheads.  EPA and other Ferriterias also sell general PVC pipe and fittings.

Hi, I am in Alajuela and going to build an IBC system and am having a hard time finding the plumbing supplies I need for the project thus I am going to order from the States.  Does anyone know of an online hardware or other store that has most of the fittings needed and that can't be or are hard to find here in Costa Rica? Thank you.

Come on over and join West Coast Tilapia.  We look forward to your input!

Anyone in this group sells and ships, or know a hatchery that sells and ships, pure strain O. Mossambicus??

Sadly, I Need To Sell My Aquaponics System!

Buenas a todos! Hi to all!

I have to sell my aquaponics system. Right now there are no more fish but the system is running with aquatic plants. I still love aquaponics but I need to make a trip in France for a while and I have nobody to take care of it!

If interested, please go to my web site for pictures here at: You can use the contact form in this very same site to get details.

Gracias a todos!

Hola, les comparto un video corto de una entrevista con Murray Hallam. Esta fue llevada a cabo en Febrero 2013 en un curso de acuaponia comercial al cual tuve la dicha de asistir. EL señor es muy buena nota y se aprenden buenos detalles con el. Si le dan a este link me tienen que buscar, soy como el 6to video. Fredrico me pusieron. pura vida

La tesis tiene por titulo "Manual para la instalación y el manejo de un sistema acuaponico a pequeña escala".

La intención es crear un documento para divulgar la acuaponía en Costa Rica.

Mañana desde las 9 voy a estar en la escuela de Ing. Forestal en el Tec de Cartago. Mi teléfono es el 8376-4852.

En cuanto pueda subiré la tesis.


Comment by Federico on August 28, 2013 at 3:17pm

Comment by Alessandro Colagrosso on August 28, 2013 at 11:26am

Buenos días, me acaban de confirmar mañana a las 10, defensa de tesis. Saludos.

Comment by Juan Carlos Narbon on August 26, 2013 at 7:15am

Gracias por el dato, y eso es algo que he comprobado con la experiencia, no tener mucho de un solo sembrado ayuda a evitar la llegada de plagas.  Sin embargo con la espinaca no he tenido ese problema, y es muy resistente a las plagas.

Interesante lo de la malla antiafidos, voy a averiguar donde la consigo en Panamá.

Felicidades Alessandro por completar tus estudios, muchos exitos.
