------------ Hello,Sir. I read the article of aquaponics the VOA Special English Agriculture Report. I would like to ask you what kind of aquaponic method will match to East African country? I found that aquaponics need many kind of materials and electricity. In the article of VOA, you mantioned about things in rural area. Good day to you from Uganda. Ichiro Owa
I am very glad that you followed the VOA article. There have been a number of other
reports as well. There is something you could clarify, i.e. your profile says you work for "Aid agency of Japan", and you also say "Good day to you from Uganda" :) .... something like me -- connected to Colorado and Calcutta at the same time!
Yes! We are very soon going to start a rural aquaponics program in a village near the Sunderbans region of West Bengal, India. Perhaps there will be some common features with an Aquaponics installation in Uganda. I will be able to describe it in greater details in a few month's time. Meanwhile, you can visit our Sankalpa Research Center website at: [www.sankalpacmfs.org/src/] for more details about our rural development initiatives.
We also have a concept note on Aquaponics, that you can download at:
