Aquaponic pond project

Postby Adam W » Sat Feb 04, 2012 4:03 pm

Hi all, thought that one of my most recent videos may be of interest.
It's on converting an existing pond to an aquaponic system. This one's just for goldfish but could also be used for edible fish.
In case your not familiar with aquaponics it's like a hydroponic system connected to pond full of fish, the water from the pond is pumped through a 'growbed' & the nutrients from the fish waste etc 'feed' the plants in the growbed - veggies or herbs most often.
Please note that it's not a commercial video although there is a courtesy credit for a company on the end of it as they let me track their project.
