US (TX): Aquaponic fish, vegetable production workshop in Prairie View
Aquaponic systems include a circular pattern in which the water from a fish tank flows to a soilless plant growing container. Waste from the fish supplies nutrients to the plants which purifies the water before it returns to the fish tank.
The program will start at 8:30 a.m. and end with a tour of an aquaponic farm in Hockley at 4 p.m., according to Dr. Joe Masabni of College Station, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service vegetable specialist and workshop organizer.
The cost of the program is $75 until Nov. 11 and $95 thereafter. Register online at http://bit.ly/Y1e27w.
Speakers will include commercial aquaponic system owners who will share their experiences on how they started and provide tips on how to operate a productive system. Dr. Todd Sink of College Station, an AgriLife Extension fisheries specialist, will talk about fish species that can be raised in aquaponic systems.
“This is a great opportunity to get hands-on experience on aquaponics,” Masabni said. “Participants can find out about the cost of construction/operation, common and not-so-common crops that can be grown, water characteristics, and system operation and maintenance.”
A small-scale aquaponic model will be available for hands-on demonstrations of the system.
