Aquaponic farming—raising fish and vegetables together commercially—is the most promising innovation for a sustainable, profitable, localized food system. Until now, systems have largely focused on warm-water fish such as tilapia. A lack of reliable information for raising fish and vegetables in the cool climates of North America and Europe has been a major stumbling block. The Aquaponic Farmer is the game changer. Built around a proven 120-foot greenhouse system operable by one person, the book distills vast experience and complete step-by- step guidance for starting and running a cold-water aquaponics business. Coverage includes: • A primer on cold-water aquaponics • Pros and cons of different systems • Complete design and construction of a Deep Water Culture system • Recommended and optional equipment and tools • System management, standard operating procedures, and maintenance checklists • Maximizing fish and veg production • Strategies for successful sales and marketing of fish and plants As the only comprehensive commercial cold-water resource, The Aquaponic Farmer is essential for farmers contemplating the aquaponics market, aquaponics gardeners looking to go commercial, and anyone focused on high quality food production. Adrian Southern is steeped in all things aquaponic. After years of urban farming and system perfection, he co-founded Raincoast Aquaponics and raises trout and vegetables for a living in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, BC. Whelm King is a business manager, project manager, and entrepreneur who has worked in the arts, agriculture, publishing, media, and law. He is co-founder of Raincoast Aquaponics and lives in Nanaimo, BC.

As our community and culture continues to move away from social democracy - one person/one vote - and towards capital manipulation and wealth devised government we continue to experience a further disconnect in "truth in marketing" where we will soon be unable to discern the quality and make-up of industrially produced and marketed "foods". Aquaponics is a "game-changer" that provides food in a manner the community controls. "Aquaponics in a Changing World... Introducing the Aqua-Pod" provides step-by-step detailed instructions for constructing a small-scale, highly efficient backyard or interior - greenhouse or artificial lighting - aquaponic farm. Complete plans are combined with an introduction to the benefits of this exciting technology, tips for selecting plants and aquatic life, and detailed installation and maintenance instructions. Start small and grow your operation to any size to fit your needs. Unlike most of the books currently on the market which tend to offer a broad overview of the technique, this hands-on, practical, concise manual provides everything you need to know to get the Aqua-Pod system up and running. Complete plans are combined with an introduction to the benefits of this exciting technology, tips for selecting plants and aquatic life, and detailed installation and maintenance instructions. Food security at home and abroad is one of the most pressing issues of our time. The rapidly increasing effects of global climate change and the decreasing availability of water and fossil fuels are together projected to exert tremendous downward pressure on our global food supply. The development of aquaponics, a proven system for efficiently and symbiotically growing vegetables and fish together, may be one of the most important scientific and social innovations of the 21st century. Take the guesswork out of gardening with this hands-on construction & operations manual to growing vegetables and fish together. Venture, if permitted (and I strongly doubt you will receive permission), onto a large industrial operation and scoop a handful of two of soil from several locations. You will find no worms or other active insect life. The dirt does not smell of fresh humus. The dirt the industrial plant is raised in has little relation to soil and requires copious amounts of synthetic fertilizers to provide the nourishment needed to grow plants. Herbicides have killed plants that would naturally be used as compost and all micro-fauna and macro-fauna have been destroyed with pesticides. The reality of industrialized agriculture raises an important question: If insects and other plants can't exist in the production of our food, is the food safe to consume? With the advent of the motor car it was not until the Ford Motor Company produced the Model "T" in mass that the automobile was eventually understood and embraced by the world as a whole. We here at CRA like to think of the Aqua-Pod as the "Tin Lizzy" of aquaponics.
