Aquaponic Gardening

A Community and Forum For Aquaponic Gardeners

Just starting out, the biggest problem was finding out where to buy the parts needed to construct an aquaponics system on Maui.  Of course, ordering online is always an option, but the shipping cost will always be excessively high, although some vendors will offer free shipping for large orders.  The best bet would be to find a supplier on Maui that will sell their goods FOB.

 

If you know of a better supplier, or one that is not listed, please add them to this list as a Reply.  Mahalo.
