Anyone have an aquaponics setup in Alaska? Are there any special considerations I need to be taking besides the -60 fahrenheit winters. As far as dish go I have heard that trout like a current and lots of aeration, which seems troublesome. Tilapia however seem to be a no go here.

HI Zach. We have many customers in Alaska. IMHO your challenges are the same ones we have here in Colorado - the bottom line is neither of us are going to be growing outdoors, year-round. But the good news aquaponics is great for indoor growing!
 
A berm makes a great wind break. And Iwe all like to break wind once in a while. Like this tiny ad:
