The workshop will include two days of lectures, hands-on activities and a tour at the Aquaponics Greenhouse at the Auburn Fisheries Station. On the third day, there will be a field trip to a commercial aquaponics facility in Birmingham, Alabama. Attendees will have the opportunity to see and hear about commercial aquaponic systems and their operations.

Aquaponic Workshops are offered as a response to the community’s overwhelming interest in aquaponics. Participants will receive detailed instruction on the basics of aquaponics, a tour of the school’s fish and plant greenhouses and guidance on designing and constructing aquaponics systems. No prior skills or training are required.

A combination of aquaculture and hydroponics, aquaponics combines the practice of raising aquatic animals in tanks with the cultivation of plants in water. An aquaponics system utilises the animals’ waste to nourish the plants, while the plants, in turn, help clean the water.

Presenters include Mr Huy Tran, Dr Jesse Chappell, Dr Terry Hanson, Dr Fred Petit, and more. Seating is limited to 30 people so please register early.
