US (HI): Growers, Department of Health debate over aquaponics safety
"There are no specific laws on aquaponics. What we have is a rule that's in our sanitation rules that basically states that when you grow vegetables that are normally eaten raw you cannot sell them or market them if they're subjected to contamination from animal waste or actual animal waters," said Peter Oshiro, Environmental Health Program Manager, DOH.

"We're open to any type of new technology that arises. The first people we're going to have to talk to is the aquaponics farmers. And what we're going to ask them is if they have any science to show us if what they're doing is safe and the recirculating waters is free from pathogens," said Oshiro.
