Description of Lecture

Aquaponics is the combination of fish production (aquaculture) and vegetable production through hydroponics (soilless farming with plant roots directly in water). This form of food production alleviates environmental risks associated with traditional aquaculture and agriculture. While aquaponics has the potiental to sustainably feed a growing global population, there remain economical challenges, particularly related to operational coast, that impede creation of sustainable aquaponics industry. This talk discusses how aquaponics systems work, the benefits and challenges of aquaponics, and the exciting research currently being conducted at the FORAM Sustainable Aquaponics Reseach Center on the Armstrong Campus of Georgia Southern University.
