US(TX): Basics of Aquaponics workshop slated Sept. 24 in Corpus Christi
The workshop, presented by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Nueces and San Patricio counties, will be held at the Del Mar Economic Development Center, Room 117, 3209 S. Staples.
A participation fee of $30, which includes a light breakfast and lunch, will be charged at the door, according to Jason Ott, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agent for agriculture and natural resources in Nueces County.
“Aquaponics is a closed system method of growing plants in a symbiotic relationship with fish,” Ott said. “The fish waste feeds the plants, and the plants clean the water that returns to the fish.”
Ott said the full-day workshop will help participants gain insight into how to design and manage their own backyard aquaponics system, as well as learn about the marketing strategies, business planning and economics of a larger, commercial system.
“Peter Woods, an AgriLife Extension fisheries specialist, will lead us through several topics of interest, including system design and terminology, planting and harvesting techniques, fish health and water quality, marketing aquaponics produce and the economics of an aquaponics system,” Ott said.
Seating is limited to the first 30 participants who RSVP before Sept. 17 to the AgriLife Extension office for Nueces and San Patricio counties, 710 E. Main in Robstown. Call 361-767-5223 to RSVP or for more information.
