Tilapia correction: The ideal temperature should be 21-29 °C (70 to 85 °F) Thankyou to those that pointed this out.… 1. Environmental Conditions First consider your your environment, is it hot, cold or tropical? Choose a fish that suits your environmental conditions. 2. Feed Sources What food to you have access to feed your fish? Will you grow duckweed? Will you breed black soldier fly larvae? 3. Purpose Are you wanting fish to eat or just for producing waste to feed your plants? 4. Size How big will your fish tank be and how many fish will you stock? Is it a small desktop system, that is great for a siamese fighting fish(betta) or a big system, that would be great for delicious Murray cod. 5. Is it legal? The fish you want, could be classified as an invasive species. So remember to check with the local fishery department.

Bioponica demonstrating bioponics and simple explanation of difference and similarity from/between hydroponics and aquaponics. Bioponics is soilless, like hydroponics and aquaponics but it’s different because unlike hydroponics, it does not use chemicals. It’s different from aquaponics because while it supports fish raising, it is not dependent on fish for fertilizer nor on the (Purina) feeds to feed them. It’s all about sustainable soilless growing, where it’s possible to close the loop by recycling organic biomass into liquid fertilizer to feed everything in the soilless growing system.

Neversink Farm in NY grosses $350,000 on farming 1.5 acres (area in production). Learn more on the podcast Is their farm profitable? Of course, it is profitable or else they wouldn’t do it and they wouldn’t still be in business. Profit margins on most small scale vegetable operations are around 30-60%, the variable is how much of that get’s spent to grow the farm by reinvesting that on infrastructure. So you could expect that they net between $175,000 and $0 depending on their goals and other tax considerations.
