Resources

One of the best things about aquaponics is how excited people are to share what they know. There’s so much information available for free, so we’ve put together some of our favourites to get you started on your aquaponics journey.

Aquaponic Gardening – the Aquaponics bible. If you’re going to get a book on aquaponics, start with this.

Great sites with a heap of info:

Backyard Aquaponics

Aquaponics.net.au

Japan Aquaponics

Forums for fellow aquaponophiles:

The Aquaponic Source Community

Backyard Aquaponics Forum

Blogs:

Urban Green Survival – great vertical bottle system on here. I used it as inspiration for the system I built for Locavore.

Practical Aquaponics

Mediamatic Aquaponics Blog – more conceptual than practical, but some nice synthesis of concept art and sustainability (in Dutch, best viewed with Google Chrome for translation. Unless you’re Dutch, of course…).

Videos:

Treehugger’s Aquaponics Video Roundup

Inspiration:

Aquaponics as Art – aquaponics never looked so cool, complete with rubber ducky!

The Plant – vertical aquaponics farm in an old warehouse in Chicago

Sky Green Farms – World’s first commercial vertical farm in Singapore. Not actually aquaponics, but still cool.
