You can buy USDA certified organic fish food from The Aquaponic Store; Volume will determine the price (more volume = lower price).

If you have any questions about organic; what it is? Whats a GMO? and other questions, PLEASE ASK!!! There are way too many people that don't really know what chemicals and GMO's do to us and our fish in an aquaponic system!

Welcome Brian, your system looks awesome. I have friends and family in Safety Harbor and Dunedin not too far from you.

I posted the ingredient list for the fish feed!

 

We are working on finding the equipment needed to produce it and that will determine the initial cost.

 

I want to share with you that all food is not the same. There has been a considerable amount of research and science that has gone into the development of this product, especially in regards to the digestibility of the ingriedents. We want the fish to be able to use as much of the food as possible, if you use ingredients that will not be completely digested, the result in an aquaponic system is excess excreted solids (poopy) that have to potential to cause problems and will have to be cleaned out at some point. This food is using the most digestible ingredients that result in less chance for unwanted buildup in your system. We want the waste from the fish to power our aquaponic systems but we want it to be the best for our plants.

 

Great Feed = Great Fish + Great Plants

I currently probably buy between 150-300 lb of fish feed per year.

 

I'm interested in feed with less corn and soy in it but only to a point.  (I don't think I'm willing to pay over a dollar a pound for fish feed.)

Hi All,

Thank You for your interest in this group. I have been involved in aquaponics since 2004. I attended the Aquaponic course at The University of the Virgin Islands in St. Croix in 2007. Soon after I started aquaponics I invited a group of organic farmers to visit the facility I was working with. They quickly asked what I was feeding the fish, when they found out it was conventional fish feed no one wanted to eat my veggies. I realized the fish have to be fed organic food if I want to have organic veggies.

 

So far we are off to a great start in 24 hrs. we have 5 members! As more Aquapons find out about this group, I believe there will be a large demand for quality organic fish feed. I have put in a request for the nutritional analysis of the Organic/Natural fish feed. It is a Tilapia formulation but will be good for most pond fish.

Everyone please post how much feed you are interested in. The feed would probably come in 40lb. bags. Give an amount for your first order then, if you continue using it, how much you think you would consume per month and/or per year. There is no commitment. Demand estimates will determine the price (more volume = lower price) Right now, I am just trying to determine if I can get it made. It has to be produced in a fairly large quantity and I have to find out how much would be consumed. As with all feeds we always want it to be fresh!

 

Thanks again,

 

Patrick

Hello Patrick,

Thank you for starting this group. Depending upon price, I would certainly be interested. I would start with one bag of 40lb (small pellets).

 

God bless,
