Do you know if there will be access to a recording after the presentations?

Hi Jessica - They have done so with all previous workshops like this, so I would guess yes.  You can email Vanessa Weldon to confirm if you want to be double-sure.

rlw here- just joined and am checking out the site...will there be another discussion soon?

Hi Robert,

Haven't heard of plans for future discussions.  If I do, will post here.  You could inquire with Vanessa Weldon in the mean time - her email address is in the original announcement.


from Vanessa Weldon yesterday:

Hello all,

 I wanted to send out an update on some events going on with eXtension. Due to several request to have some of the webinars in a downloadable format eXtension is conducting a pilot study to determine the feasibility and cost of creating these files in addition to having the recordings available online. The Freshwater Aquaculture Aquaponics: Paradigm Shift with Airlift Series has been chosen to be part of this study. The Aquaponics: Paradigm Shift with Airlift Part 1 and Aquaponics: Paradigm Shift with Airlift Part 2 are now both avialable on YouTube. Thank you.

Way cool Paul! Thanks for sharing =)
