This conference appearance found us back in Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh at the Institute of Water’s Circular Economy Leaders’ Summit, hosted by the Institute of Water and FutureX Innovation. Once again our fish was the star of the show, but we managed to get some attention as well. Lots of great stuff happening in the industry, and lots of opportunities for collaboration in the near future!
We recently had the pleasure of taking part in the 2050 Summit. The 2050 Climate Group works with young professionals to ensure a sustainable future beyond 2050, and there was lots of interest in aquaponics and William, our star goldfish of the day!
Check out some of the great work the 2050 Climate Group is doing here.
Hey, did you know that our director, Sinéad, is also a Crunch Ambassador with the Wellcome Trust’s The Crunch Programme? That means if you’re a school wanting to get to grips with the science resource kit you’ve received, or you’d like help organising an engaging event around food, health and the planet in your community, you can get in touch!

What a beautiful aquaponics design! Just goes to show, the possibilities are only as limited as your imagination and the length of piping. I’ve got to get my hands on some claw-toed baths…
The artist is Amy Youngs, and she uses worm tea instead of live fish to spread the nutrient love. Worm tea is produced by worms when composting materials, and is the beverage of choice of plants everywhere. If you’re interested in learning more about worm tea, check it out here.
