Unlike traditional agriculture, we use 1/6 of the water to sustainably grow 8 times more food per acre, without the use of pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers, year ‘round, in any climate.

Vision Statement

  • We believe that our company can help to provide food security for all nations through aquaponics and controlled environment agriculture.
  • We engage in sustainable business and manufacturing processes and inspire our employees to be the best they can be.
  • As the global leader in aquaponic food production, we demonstrate responsible growth while focusing on innovation, sustainability and efficiency.

Business Components

Quality, integrity and relationship building are key components in our business model, reflected in each of the product categories of our business: systems, training, and service and support.

We manufacture and sell Clear Flow Aquaponic Systems®, the best, most complete, science-based aquaponic systems, designed for maximum food production and minimal waste. They are made from high-quality components and include detailed assembly and operation manuals, Standard Operating Procedures and Good Agriculture Practices manuals.

We offer comprehensive, experience-based aquaponic training programs that provide hands-on learning and real-world experience in aquaponics.  In partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP), we offer University credit for our Aquaponics Master Class™ and have collaborated with UWSP to develop and teach the first-of-its-kind University course in aquaponics.

Service and Support
We offer project planning and design services to assist our customers in getting started with valid, accurate information and viable system designs. Our technical support and Nelson and Pade, Inc.® Grower Program provide continued support for our customers once they purchase a system and start growing.
