What we do!

Produce

Aquaponic can produce six times more per square foot and uses 90% less water than traditional farming. Because the system recycles the water, we can grow in droughts and areas with little water. Plants grow twice as fast due to the naturally fortified water from the fish and is inherently organic.

Tilapia

Probably the oldest farm raised fish in the world. Today, over 80 nations produce farm-raised Tilapia. They are a hardy herbivorous fish that feeds on algae or small aquatic plant cells, and is primarily raised in freshwater systems using cages, ponds, raceways or open waters. Tilapia has a low to moderate fat content, and is a rich source of high quality protein.

Aquaponics

The marriage of Aquaculture (raising fish) and Hydroponics (the soil-less growing of plants) that grows fish and plants together in one integrated system.  The fish waste provides an organic food source for the growing plants and the plants provide a natural filter for the water the fish live in.
