Please tell us something else about yourself.
I have a BS degree in Aquatic Biology and a MS degree in Environmental Studies focused on waste management obtained in the mid 90's. I have my own business doing database software development for small businesses and have not used my knowledge related to aquaponics until last year when I got a strong inclination to move toward a more sustainable and local food production if not personal food production system.

I'm a strong advocate for open-source technologies and advancement of information and in the spirit of that I have named my project Open Source Aquaponics and have created a website to freely share my research and knowledge with the world as well as serve as an inspiration for others to be motivated to do something similar.

Greetings fellow aquaponic enthusiasts!

I’ve put together my aquaponic system and website to share information and my experience in development of sustainable, personal food production for better health as well as my passion for living things.  I’ve always enjoyed gardening, but have struggled with the extremely short growing season here in Minnesota.

So I decided I would do something about that (besides complain) and I built a “lean-to type”  of greenhouse alongside…
