Aquaponics, Barrel-Ponics and My Aqua Farm

Hello everyone,
I was asked to start a new thread to discuss aquaponics as it seems some of you are interested in this for your home food production.
My name is Travis W. Hughey. I'm the inventor of Barrel-Ponics and designer of the My Aqua Farm aquaponics systems.

My website is:
http://www.myaquafarm.com

Any questions?

It looks like your link is broken. I get an SSL warning and redirected to Site5 hosting page. I would love to learn more about aquaponics.

Link works for me, probably something with your browser security settings.

I've done a lot of reading into Aquaponics and love the idea. I've always had a garden and I've done a lot of natural planted aquariums, I used to grow and sell aquarium plants as a self-sustaining hobby, so it is right up my alley. One of these days when/if I settle ad have some land it will be my first project along with a nice greenhouse!

Thank you for the info, is it possible to do a small mobile setup for 1 person, with say a few herbs and maybe a fish to eat every other day? What are we looking at 12x8 area?

Just curious, respond when your bored and have time ;)

Can you raise that many fish in such a small place?

12ftx8ftx3ft deep would be ~2000 gallons so thats actually a pretty big area, you could raise 500-700 pounds worth of fish in there.
