The Flourish Fish Farm 600 is a complete recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) ready to raise ornamental or edible fish and provide nutrients to your plants. The system is designed to plug and play into almost any Media, NFT or DWC based plant growing system. Easily add any of our Growasis Deep Water Culture Troughs to create a complete aquaponic system.
The Flourish Fish Farm 600
The Flourish Fish Farm 600 recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) has been designed by The Aquaponic Source as a turn-key fish farm for any aquaculture, aquaponic, or hydroponic farm. Simply “plug” this system into a hydroponic plant system to provide all of your nutrients from the fish. This is an extremely flexible system which allows you to operate the RAS as a coupled aquaponic system with your plants, or as a standalone decoupled aquaculture system.
The Flourish Fish Farm 600 Recirculating Aquaculture System
- Raise various fish species: Tilapia, Koi, Catfish, Trout, Hybrid Striped Bass, Bluegill, Perch, and more
- Harvest capacity of up to 320 lbs of live fish per year
- Supports over 1,680 plants such as head lettuces, leafy greens or herbs in deep water culture (approx. 480 sq ft at 3.5 plants per sq ft)
How it Works
- When the system is decoupled from the plants, water flows from the fish tanks to the fish sump
- Clean water is returned to the fish through an automatic backwashing filter which provides both mechanical and biological filtration
- When coupled to your plant system, fish system water flows through the hydroponic plant system, providing nutrients. Cleaned water from the plants then returns to the fish system, and the process repeats.
- A pump recirculates water between the plant sump and your plant system
- Fish solids removed from the filter can be naturally mineralized and converted to plant nutrients in the Aerobic Digester tank
- The Aerobic Digester is connected to the plant sump. Simply open the valve to give your plants a nutrient boost. Nothing gets wasted!
- The system is designed to never discard any water. All water is recaptured from the fish solids and introduced into your hydroponic system, or used as nutrients for outdoor crops.
