I am career fish farmer with 15+ years experience growing both FW and SW food fish mostly in RAS systems on a very large scale for various employers. At home- I am a hobby hydroponic farmer and have 2 years experience selling at a local farmers market.

Hey..sent a friend request. I am in Waterboro, and have gotten my system going. It is my second one, this one larger than the last. Use to live on Kennebunk Road, Alfred, Moved to Waterboro for some land. System has a 100 gal fish tank with 2 additional tanks acting as sumps. One is the main sump that pumps back into the fish, the other is under the grow beds (4-50 gal tanks with crushed stone). Lettuce growing like weeds in one, waiting for the power to get the other three up and lit. More later....interested in seeing your set-up if possible. John McCaw

David, given your interest in aquaponic farming I wanted to suggest that you consider this class -  I will be participating, as will a few other aquaponists and I highly recommend it.
