Nigel’s fled to the warmer climes of Western Australia for a well deserved holiday, so this is just a quick photo-update on our small experimental backyard aquaponics facility. After the introduction of our perch, both the primary ponds cleared rapidly, with, as you can see below, a resultant healthy crop of green leaves… all going well we will be looking into upscaling in 2009 and seeing how it all works on a larger scale. We’re currently looking into types of polytunnel and alternative plants. More updates when Nigel returns. In the meantime here’s some before and after shots…

    Nice site SoCal – We’re getting all prepped for a bigger experiment once it warms up a bit here in Ireland and were very interested in the shrimp aspect of your operation.

We anticipate trying out a somewhat larger system next year. We’ll definitely have to come visit LA at some stage!
