Eliminating bottlenecks to improve aquaponic processes

A new publication by Hendrik Monsees, Werner Kloas and Sven Wuertz reports a pilot study comparing production in a decoupled system with that in a coupled system. Fruit yield was found to be 36% higher in the decoupled system, and pH and fertilizer management was more effective, whereas fish production was comparable in both systems. The results of this pilot study illustrate the main advantages of decoupled, two-loop aquaponics systems and demonstrate how bottlenecks commonly encountered in coupled aquaponics systems can be managed.
