US (NC): Aquaponics short course by NC State University

Designed to provide entrepreneurs research based technical training in the fundamentals of aquaponic technology, an upcoming NC State course will showcase techniques and practices that are being used at one of the largest commercial facilities in the U.S.



NC commercial aquaponics experts from the facility at Lucky Clay’s Fresh will lead the presentations.

Aquaponics Farm Manager Bradley Todd joined the team at Lucky Clays Farm in 2010 and began managing Lucky Clays Fresh in 2013. Todd was raised in Aquadale, North Carolina and spent five years in the Marine Corps. After completing service, he received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Geology and Earth Science from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. While overseas in the military, Todd began his research in the fundamentals, engineering, and science of aquaculture and hydroponics, which ultimately lead him to learn about the process of combining the two into an efficient and sustainable farming system. Todd intends to incorporate bio-floc technology, Vermiculture, and mycology into an all-encompassing production flow with Lucky Clays Fresh’s established Aquaponics system.
