Home Garden
Estimated* lbs. of fish
*Estimated pounds of fish is based on raising Nile Tilapia, under optimum conditions.
215 lbs/year
Estimated* number of heads of lettuce/greens
*The amount of vegetables you will grow is dependent on climate, management, the amount of environmental control you have and whether you are using grow lights. Growing in a controlled environment greenhouse with high intensity grow lights will yield the best results. We have used lettuce as an example because it is commonly grown in aquaponics. Most other greens such as collards, chard, bok choi and herb varieties such as basil, chives and cilantro, can be grown using the same plant spacing. Other crops, such as tomatoes, eggplant, melons, beans, cucumbers, etc., can be grown using the appropriate plant spacing.
