Just recently immigrated to Seattle from Australia and am currently looking into aquaponics as a possible postdoc research topic. I recently completed my PhD at the University of Southern Queensland, where I was developing a water saving system for large scale agricultural reservoirs. Seattle, however, is not the ideal place to continue this avenue of work! Therefore, I looking into other research topics that are related, interested me and suit the skills and experience I have gained.

I am fairly new to the topic of aquponics and have already begun to furiously read everything I can find. I really think aquaponics is a fantastic concept with massive potential. I am very excited to begin my next journey!

Hi Gavin, sorry for my late response. I know exactly what you mean about time and responsibility, that is part of why it took me so long to get back to you.  I have the google doc prepared and ready to share with you. I can send it to you if you send me your e-mail. I can be contacted at  

Thanks Gavin

Hi Gavin, I'm located in Kirkland WA, I was wondering if you would be interested in working on an open source project to develop an aquaponic greenhouse for developing nations.

Welcome Gavin,

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 Home page. You might also find the “Aquaponic Gardening Rules of Thumb” guidelines helpful.

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

Normally Sylvia Bernstein, the community's founder, would be welcoming you, but she is vacationing in Japan and I am helping out by welcoming new members in her absence. I am certain she would be excited to have you join and she will be looking forward to getting to know you upon her return.

Thanks again for joining us, and I too look forward to getting to know you too. See you around the site!

Gina Cavaliero
