The Instructors.
Murray is probably the most well known face in the world-wide aquaponics movement. He discovered aquaponics in 2006, and immediately put his fibreglass and boat-building skills to work to build and sell aquaponics systems and equipment through Practical Aquaponics in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

He is perhaps best known around the world, for his outstanding aquaponics full length video series: Aquaponics Made Easy, Aquaponics Secrets, and the recently released DIY Aquaponics. His entertaining and educational short videos can be found on you tube by searching for "Murray Hallam Aquaponics".

Murray has a trade and business background and together with tertiary education has developed broad Aquaponics knowledge and skills. His gold standard Aquaponics kits are distributed right around Australia in their hundreds and have also been exported to New Zealand, Hong Kong, United States. Feedback from Murray's large client base has provided valuable development data for our knowledge base Aquaponics.
