Abstract

This project evaluates the long-term practicality of the aquaponic enterprise for economic and environmental sustainability. The investigator is comparing three types of plant-growing materials(rock wool, pea gravel and floating rafts) in a recirculating aquaponic system to grow basil, lettuce and Nile tilapia. Future plans include use of native yellow perch in the system rather than the non-native tilapia.
