Thanks Anir.   It's good to know you.

For now, system is running fine.  Fishes look happy and pond looks good to me as well.  I am not happy with some plant results.  I would need to remove some of the bad performing ones this week and replant.  We shall discuss one item at a time.

We are making our first NFT spinach harvest today. Shall update with some pictures.  My camera is down, so getting good quality pictures is a problem now.  I am sorting it out asap.

Having visited Anir's Aquaponics setup, I can surely say he has put in lot of effort to create a wonderful prototype of aquaponics. Wishing him all the best for his future endeavors

Sure Anir, I was anyways thinking of visiting ur place. I have very little knowledge on this subject and that thru internet. I need to understand the complete system , as to where will I get the required material,how to build the complete set up, cost price, etc. How and where can I get this info??? Do u have any written material which I can go thru?

Hi Anir, thanks for the note. I am new to aquaponics and there fore would need lot of guidance. I have just finalised a half an acre farm land on which I am interested to start up my own pilot project and if it works well, I would like to expand it to a commercial level.

Sir I am a student in Kolkata, I am interested in organic and sustainable gardening and its only been 2-3 months I came to know about aquaponics and I plan to have a set up of my own in the near future. I was eager to know if someone closer was into aquaponics and here I found you. As I learned from your videos that you have various kinds of aquaponic set ups as well as hydroponic ones, also I noticed you have done considerable improvisations on set ups, as on the growing vegetable types (which are Indian in nature) and on the growing media and many beyond. May be my knowledge is limited but I have seen you as the first one to be so comfortable with coco coir. I believe these improvisations are necessary in the kind of weather we have. Right now you are my personal hero and as you might have guessed, I am looking forward to have some invaluable experience in this sector through you(simply bother you a bit ), if you allow. I will be waiting for your reply to make a step further in the greatest fine art of the future.........

Hi Anir,

Though I am eager to start this system, I found some hitches in this project which are discussed below.

As you know, in our country the power is the main problem in this project. We face acute power cuts and the rates are very high. So I think this problem has to be addressed to so that many people can adhere to this system and get benefited. Now I am searching for some alternative to power the system and keep it running. Moreover the solar panel also costs more to setup.

I will be great if you can share some ideas on this.

 

Regards

Nagaraj

Dear Anirban: Thank you for your kind words. I would be delighted to visit with you at Survey Park, Santoshpur. Is it near the bye-pass? I tried to call at [9830627921], but could not reach you. Perhaps I will try later, or you could call me at 23359812 or 9339259812. Looking forward to talking to you soon. Warm regards: Subra.

Hi Anir: I am delighted to know that I have an aquaponics expert sitting right here in Kolkata! I have very little knowledge of Aquaponics as a technology, but I believe it holds the answer to food security and generating sustainable livelihoods in poor, village-based communities, where land and water resources are getting increasingly scarce. I am currently working in the Sunderbans area, and I would like to integrate growing of spirulina with aquaponics and biomethanation. I would be delighted to meet with you and compare notes, and invite you to help us to disseminate this wonderful technology to the poor people who need it the most. I can be reached at (033) 2335 9812 or my mobile at +91 93392 59812  or +91 94330 19821. My email address is [subra@sankalpacmfs.org] and you can checkout our website at [www.sankalpacmfs.org/src/]. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Subra Mukherjee.
