Aquaponic Fish Nurseries
If the fish you will buy are smaller than stocking size (typically 50 grams), you should start them in our nursery system. This is a very efficient method of starting with fry (very young fish) and growing them to stocking size. Our fish nurseries are complete aquaponic systems that include plant grow beds so you get some early plant production even before your commercial system is operating. Inline heaters andchillers are available to maintain proper water temperature for your young fish.
If you are just building your greenhouse and aquaponic system, you can get a jump start on the start-up time by setting up and stocking your fish nursery first. When planning where you will put the nursery, remember that the plants in the grow beds will need sunlight or grow lights.
