Are you an aquaponic gardener already?
If so, what type of system? (pick all that apply)
I have a Murray Hallam designed Aquaponics Kit called "The Maximus" at home that has been running for well over a year now and has grown all sorts of vegetables. There are about 60 Jade Perch in it at the moment that are just about ready for harvest. Well made Aquaponics systems work very well without any trouble.

We produced a DVD with Murray Hallam called "Aquaponics Made Easy" as well as another companion DVD that is aimed more at experienced Aquaponicists called "Aquaponics Secrets" which will be released shortly here in Australia. We also produce a range of educational and instructional videos for the Permaculture Research Institute in Australia with Geoff Lawton who is an avid fisherman and supporter of Aquaponics.
