Since coming across the Aquaponics Concept by a chance conversation, I have been totally hooked on Aquaponics.
I have always been very interested in growing my own vegetables and a keen fisherman, so the idea of Aquaponics (being able to grow your own fish and vegetables together) really struck a chord with me.
On searching the net and other sources I discovered that there was very little product available that truly suited the needs of a Backyard or Commercial Aquaponic project. I was not able to purchase decent Grow Beds and Fish Tanks or pump equipment that was suitable for the task.
With my experience as a boat builder, and skills in Fibre Glass I decided early to manufacture the right Grow Beds and Fish Tanks for my own use and other Aquaponist’s in Australia.
Some time after that initial conversation I contacted Joel Malcolm in Perth, purchased his book “Backyard Aquaponics”, which proved to be very useful.
Naturally I started right away to get some Australian native fish and get on with learning all I could about Aquaponics by practical application.
My approach to Aquaponics is a very practical one, I actually have several Aquaponics systems operating at all times producing vegetables and fresh fish for our table. During this time I have discovered what works best and what doesn't.
Creating an on-line presence for Aquaponic product and information is an addition to our already successful web site www.boatshop.com.au which has been on line since October 1999 providing Marine Product to Australia and Near Pacific Nations.
