We have a Friendly Aquaponics style micro system, with 80sq ft of hydroponic troughs. The fish tank is a 275 gallon aluminum cage style plastic square container. This is a deep water culture system. It began June 2010 with fish, with plants added soon after. Roughly 10-15lbs of white and brown tilapia. The whole system is under a pvc/visquene hoop house on the windy north shore of Maui.
Please tell us something else about yourself.
We operate completely off grid.
We have been operating a 80sqft DWC system since June 2010 and are building a 2,600sqft system a la Friendly Aquaponics that should be online this summer 2011.
We are 23 and 27 with no aquaculture experience and doing just fine!
