First of all we appreciate everyone, including our competitors, who is working to advance better ways of growing food and promoting aquaponics. We don’t disparage others in the industry and we encourage people to take as many classes and workshops as they can from reputable aquaponic companies.
However, we do advise people to do their research and make sure they are working with companies and consultants who have a proven and experienced track record. There are many important aspects of designing an ecologically balanced system to ensure consistent and successful long term operations. Companies should have a minimum of five years of experience operating farms as a business along with designing, building and supporting systems. Make sure they can demonstrate the successful completion of projects and provide customer references.
Make sure the company has the capability to manufacture and deliver a fully functioning system with all of the parts and equipment you need to build and operate the farm.
