Aquaponics harvest in the Philippines

A while back I talked about the first aquaponics experiment in the Philippines in my backyard.

Since I initially posted that experiment, I've had a number of plants grow and I have tested other plants in the system such as adding sugarcane. Quite a few of my readers also wanted some consulting on how to develop this on their properties and fish farms. I hope some of my guidance has helped.

I would have to say this was a very successful experiment if we consider two goals:
  1. Proof of concept that this is doable in small areas with basic materials from any hardware store.
  2. Proof of concept that this is commercially viable.
On the pictures posted, it shows my fish being harvested with my little boy and his nanny watching. The size of the fish is slightly larger than what you'll find in the supermarket.
