Murray is probably the most well-known face in the worldwide aquaponics movement. He discovered aquaponics in early 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 full-length aquaponics DVDs: Aquaponics Made Easy, Aquaponics Secrets, and DIY Aquaponics. His entertaining and educational short videos can be found on YouTube by searching for “Murray Hallam’s Practical Aquaponics”. Practical Aquaponics regularly provides consulting services to commercial farm projects in Australia, the USA, Asia and the Middle East.
Murray has a trade and business background and, together with tertiary education, has developed broad Aquaponics knowledge and skills. His Aquaponics kits are distributed right around Australia and have also been exported to New Zealand, Hong Kong, the United States, New Caledonia, PNG and Malawi. Feedback from Murray’s large client base has provided valuable development data for our knowledge base in Aquaponics.

Additionally, Murray has conducted Aquaponics seminars in Oceanside and Pescadero, California; Denver, Colorado; Huston, Texas; Orlando, Florida; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Morocco and India.
