Ever heard of Bio Sync? Ultimate cascading compost fertility engine?

I was listening to a chicken geneticist and engineer on the phone talking about several things, but the subject of bio sync came up.  That's what it sounded like... bio-sync.  I'm not sure on the spelling though.

He said he incorporates chickens, worms, koi fish, a water filtration media something, and something else.... but he said that he goes too buy feed to input into the system because he makes more money out of the finished product than it costs to put it in.

I was just trying to find out more information on this, but couldn't find any with the search function.

-Has anyone ever heard of this?

-Also, if not, what is the most ultimate cascading compost system / fertility engine you have seen designed by human mind?

This setup seems pretty common.

Fish+Chicken manure is sent to worm compost section.
Worms are harvested to feed fish and chicken.

Compost is harvested to feed plants
Plants are harvested to feed chicken+fish.

This is really just an aquaponic system, where:
fish solid waste is composted by worms + worms feed to fish
plants are fed to chicken + chicken manure feed to worms

Quite a few critters can be harvested from a compost system, and all aquariums/aquaponic system usually need aeration/flow/pump and some type of filter system to turn urine/ammonia to nitrates and usual a system to remove excess poop/feed. Garden Pool has quite a few system even with goats added to the mix. https://gardenpool.org/service/gp-design

Thank you, was that link off of a bio sync link?  Curious where you found it!

One thing I'm always curious about is how to setup a system that requires only inputs that you can generate on your property easily and abundantly and not require all of them.  I very much want it to be enjoyable and relaxing, and not a concern of not having enough inputs to keep the engine running.  

We will also get Home Biogas which has two outputs of methane and liquid fertilizer
So you made a portal in time and started grabbing people. This tiny ad thinks that's rude:
