We're just beginning a small system in Nicaragua as a trial program with the goal of learning enough to expand the system. The end goal is to produce fruits, veggies, and fish to compliment a rice and soy food product that we distribute to the poor in rural communities, and to teach the system to others who might want to do the same.

Welcome Doug,


Sounds like you are doing some great work in Nicaragua!

Thanks for joining the Aquaponic Gardening community.  I hope you find it a fun place to explore aquaponics.  There is a real blend of experienced and new aquapons in this community, so please don’t hesitate to get in there and start asking questions. Everyone is quite happy to help out new members – no question is too basic.  


A great place to start is to read the “How to Use This Site” link on the upper right corner, “Start Here” section of the Main page.  You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.

Please add a profile photo, participate and check in with us every day!  We are constantly posting news about aquaponics and the good food movement.

Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.
