Do you have much information on aquaponics. I am wanting to setup a small system in my backyard greenhouse.

Hi there,

For information on backyard aquaponics, I would first refer to this article from our aquaculture specialist with the OSU Sea Grant Extension program, David Landkamer. Transform fish waste into food for an aquaponics garden. For more information about food safety for fish and plants grown in an aquaponics system, Landkamer recommends a publication from the University of Hawaii at Manoa (PDF). To learn more about aquaponics in general, see this U.S. Department of Agriculture website on aquaponics.

This should get you started. Thanks for using Ask an Expert.
