Does anyone here have experience using mushrooms, specifically wine cap (Garden Giants or King Stropharia) as a mycofilter ( other species acceptable)? Especially in an aquaponic or aquaculture setting? I am trying to drop nitrates down to manageable levels. Once I have time a little later I have a few papers and articles to share on what I would like to do.

Here are the links I was mentioning:

My plan is to somehow combine mushroom growing with such a wood chip bioreactor. Anything I need to think of? Suggestions? Maybe someone has already tried it but no one knows. Seems like there is a lot of gaps in this field but I guess I try it. Trouble is when running a business/farm one may not have the facilities, time or inclination to do a proper scientific study.
