AQUAPONICS COURSE DISTANCE LEARNING Aquaponics is considered the world’s most productive food system with regards to water use efficiency. Use of water can vary, however, many aquaponics systems only use around half of the volume of water to produce £100 worth of food (fish and vegetables or fruit) than inorganic hydroponics. ACS Student Comments: I am loving the course! I have learned so much and can't stop reading the material. My tutors give me great feedback. I believe this has been one of the most rewarding and valuable learning experiences. Not only do I look forward to doing my classes everyday I’m also learning great information for something I am truly passionate about. I believe the layout of each lesson is very helpful and I am surprised how much information I learn from just reading a few pages. I graduated from an online national high school and was so happy when I found this school. I am very satisfied with this type of education. The school has been so helpful and nice! I am also very satisfied with the staff at this school. Anytime I have a question they have been right there to help me along the way. The support is great and it makes my learning experiences even better. Chloe Blum, UK - Aquaponics course.
Aquaponics is an intensive way of farming that can be conducted anywhere.
• It can produce a great deal more food products per unit of area than more traditional forms of farming. • It diversifies the income for a grower, making them more resilient to fluctuations in income (eg. when vegetables are in less demand, fish might be in higher demand. If fish profits drop, vegetable profits may increase. • It can be viable on any scale, small scale set ups in small home garden can provide for the needs of a single family; medium size operations on less than a quarter acre can be a viable small business, large scale operations on many acres, even hundreds of acres can also be viable • It can allow food to be produced closer to the end user in areas otherwise unsuited to farming (eg. In a desert, city farming….etc). This reduces food miles and expenditure of fuel on food transport and in turn increases freshness of food arriving at market. • It can be more efficient use of water where water resources are limited • It can be environmentally friendly, containing and reusing waste, rather than returning it to the environment, and causing pollution.
