eBook (PDF) - Secrets to Successful Aquaponics Farming - Backyard & Commercial systems


Product Description

Since 2010 we have had numerous enquiries for a book on Aquaponics that covers the basics and a lot more around the type of fish and plants that are best suited for aquaponics.

Not only that, but customers also want to know a bit more on commercial systems and what is involved in going commercial.

Based on our experience over the years in supplying and building small and commercial systems to the African market, we have finally launched our first book around the many topics that surround Aquaponics. It took over 5 months to compile this 140 PAGE book titled
"Secrets to Successful Aquaponics Farming" available in PDF format.

The book is targeted mainly at the aquaponics farmer or aquaponics enthusiast in Africa. People living in countries outside Africa, with moderate to warm climates, will also find it to be a good resource.

In the book we share some of the secrets:

  • For example, did you know that in larger aquaponic systems, fish alone are not enough to produce the required nutrients for the plants? We tell you what else has to be supplemented, including the right dosages.
  • How many fish should you stock in an Aquaponics system? The general rule of thumb of "XX" Kilograms of fish per 1000 litres just doesn't cut it. Its more scientific than that, and we supply the formulas for you to calculate the correct numbers.
  • Fish, plants and bacteria all have different needs, so what exactly is the perfect happy medium for all of them ? We have taken a complicated subject and made it easy to understand through the use of infograms and illustrations.
  • Confused about what type of aquaponics system is best for your needs? Don't worry, we go into detail on the 4 main types of aquaponic systems, highlighting advantages and disadvantages for each.
  • What fish is best for your environment, and can you realistically grow fish to 1KG in 12 months in an aquaponics system?
  • What are the most popular plants for aquaponics? We give you a list, going into detail on each variety. We also touch on how to avoid pests and diseases and how to plant from seed.

Aquaponics can seem complicated to the beginner, but this book breaks it down into easy to understand sections, packed with information, photos, illustrations and video links.

Whether you are looking at starting an Aquaponics system, or you already have a system but are considering going commercial, then this book is for you.

    Posted by on 20th Feb 2017

    As a beginner to aquaponics, I came across this informative booklet. The booklet is helpful and easy to read with simple understandings. If I had not purchased this booklet, some critical things may not have been installed. The simple formulas for how many fish versus the square meter of growing space is required. The various types of growing systems and how to create them is wonderful.
    I'd like to thank the author/s for taking the time to creating this simple understanding of aquaponics.

    An easy to read and absorb basic primer for Aquaponics.
