Does Aquaponics Really Work?

One of the questions some people ask is “Does Aquaponics really work over the long term?”

Other people have concerns about adding all sorts of complicated filtration mechanisms to keep the fish water clean and pure. Some of these concerns are legitimate in a commercial aquaponics scenario.

But for the average person raising fish and vegetables together for home use, a well built aquaponics system does not require complicated filtration systems. Murray Hallam has been building quality made aquaponics systems for domestic use for a number of years now and there are hundreds of happy users producing fish and vegetables for home consumption without any additional filtration apart from the grow beds.

Recently we caught up with Murray to ask him to explain their uses. Rather than get into a lengthy debate about this issue, Murray as usual wanted to show us what a great system is all about. Producing healthy, large fish and fresh, clean vegetables.

Here’s a clip from his “Aquaponics: The First 12 Months” to be released shortly. How healthy does that fish look?
