MONTELLO, Wis. — No cows, no cropland, but there’s plenty of protein and nutritious leafy greens. That’s what aquaponics offers.

At the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point it’s called a transformational, global-agriculture business practice that ranges from home-food production to large-scale commercial food-fish farming.
