what our client says

The facility’s aquaponics system comes from a Wisconsin company called Nelson and Pade, run by Rebecca Nelson and John Pade, who have been a huge resource for Green Relief, providing training as well as scientific and production advice along the way. “They’ve both been to the facility, giving us a lot of positive information on how to deal with oxygenation, stocking density, organic beneficial bacteria, and many other issues.
