John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ goes on a field trip to Sustainable Harvesters, one of the largest commercial aquaponic farms in texas. You will discover how they are able to grow 7000 heads of lettuce a week using fish to produce fertilizer for the lettuce.

In this episode, John will give you a special tour of this commercial aquaponics farm. First, you will learn how aquaponics is different than hydroponics and which is more sustainable and better for the planet.

Next, you will learn all the different aspects of an aquaponics system and how it works and some of the special practices they do at Sustainable Harvesters that I haven’t seen anywhere else.

You will discover why they don’t add any additional nutrients to their system as well as why the only cultivate a special kind of fish that ensures their aquaponics system stays balanced.
