Growing Naturally with Fish
About 8 years ago I stumbled across a story on a frugal living forum about a bloke that would go barramundi (Asian sea bass) fishing from a deck chair on his back patio.
He didn’t live on a crocodile infested creek in North Queensland or on a boat but in a house in suburban Brisbane on a block almost half the size of ours.
His small backyard was filled with 2 large cut down Colorbond rain water tanks filled with fish and numerous grow beds growing lush greenery that was just waiting to be paired with some tasty BBQ’ed fish.
Now at that point we had grown a small amount of food using hydroponics and was very impressed with all we had produced. After reading about this chap’s successes and failures I was sold on having a crack at this “fish powered hydroponics” game.
Over the following years I picked up quite a bit of experience building and running backyard aquaponic systems. As I’ve picked up tips and tricks I’ve passed them on to others via our YouTube and Facebook page, however I felt a website would be better at hosting more detailed information that was hard to share through those platforms.
