An Interesting take on Aquaponics, Wonder if this would work in Illinois?

June 5, 2013

Someone just forwarded this video to me and the wheels are turning. There are so many possibilities for an aquaponics system that I’m not sure there is a “best” version. I do like how even the rafts of lettuce, onions, herbs, or chard growing have shrimp living underneath them. A true maximization of space. Since shrimp are filter feeders I think they are using these as a second wave of biological filtration in cohesion with the symbiotic plant bacteria and basic trickle filter. I hope I can build up to something like this someday.
