I can across this PDF which is published by the FAO (Food and Agriculture Org of the UN), and find it to be the most comprehensive guide to all aspects of Aquaponics. 288 pgs, and lots of statistical information, graphs, designs, etc. Better than every book I've ever checked out from the library on the subject.

Although no book can be all-inclusive, I highly recommend this guide.

Also, if anyone can suggest something similar, please post here.

Thanks!!

Has anyone tried building a plaster tank for aquaponics/greenhouse thermal mass? The IBC systems look like the fastest way to get started, but fish like steady temperatures with small fluctuations. I am thinking of building a system that would produce 500 pounds of Talapia every 6 months in an earth sheltered green house. I live in zone 8, but have many many cloudy/foggy days in the winter months. Has anyone designed a water heater/mixer system for a RMH that will not cook the fish? I start digging as soon as the ground dries out enough to get the backhoe to the bottom of the upper pasture. Any suggestions are appreciated.
Thankyou,

Steve

Hi,

I wrote what is arguably the first book on aquaponics in the world...the Urban Aquaponics Manual.  It was first published in 2008 and has been revised three times.  The 4th Edition is long overdue but you can access the 3rd Edition with my compliments... urban aquaponics

Of course, if you want the best integrated aquaculture system in the world, then we're talking about the Integrated Aqua-Vegeculture System (iAVs) - the progenitor of all aquaponics systems.  It was developed by Dr Mark R McMurtry back in 1985.  It was the original...and, in m view, it's still the most productive, resilient and sustainable way to integrate fish and plants...period!  It's been 'open source' since before the term was developed... integrated aqua-vegeculture system

I'll post the URL's for these resources once I learn how.

Gary
