After a few months of planning, designing, and building, Santa Barbara Aquaponics is taking shape. We still have a lot to do but our fish tank, media bed, and trough are in place and we’ve planted our first 150 seeds. The water is flowing, mosquito fish are in place and we should be getting catfish next week, which will be our ‘engine’ for growing our aquaponics produce. We look forward to learning from our small demonstration system, which blends the efficiencies of commercial systems into a footprint small enough to fit into a backyard. Stay tuned and we will let you all know when we are going to have our first tour, where we can fill you in on all the details of what we’re building, why we won’t be selling fish, and how we can help you follow your passion.
