China: Growing aquaponic vegetables for the Hongkong and Macau market

In  the Guangdong Jiangmen National Agricultural Science and Technology Park, Tan Huimin from Hong Kong, one of the principals of Guangdong Tiancai Agriculture, is showing visitors around in the fish and vegetable symbiosis project in Kaiping. Kaiping is a city in the South of China, close to the Chinese border. 

In 2016, Luo Weite, Liang Lifeng, and Tan Huimin came to the  Guangdong Jiangmen National Agricultural Science and Technology Park in Cangcheng Town, Kaiping City, and started experiments in a 400-square-meter greenhouse. In the past five years, they have collected more than 5,100 sets of water quality data, cultivated more than 220 vegetable varieties in experiments. In May 2019, they formally established Guangdong Tiancai Agriculture.

“It usually takes one and a half months to grow vegetables open field from seedlings to picking, but after our vegetables are grown, they are transferred to racks for aerosol cultivation, and they can be harvested in one month, which greatly increases the yield.” Tan Huimin said. "The manure water produced by fish farming is used to cultivate vegetables, and after the water is absorbed and purified by the vegetables, it is used again." 

Today, they own a fish-vegetable symbiosis cycle agricultural plant factory with an area of ​​5,000 square meters and a seedling base with an area of ​​1,200 square meters. As the first vegetable production base for Hong Kong and Macau registered in Kaiping City, Guangdong Tiancai Agriculture can produce 30 tons of vegetables for Hong Kong every month.
