|Project Summary||Project Information|
Aquaponics is an innovative system that combines raising aquatic animals with cultivating plants through a symbiotic system. Vertical farming is a modern technique where plants can be stacked and monitored to thrive in an indoor environment. To incorporate vertical farming with raising aquatic animals, some problems that arise include fish vitality, budget, energy usage, and availability of resources.
The goal of this project is to develop a functional, well-documented prototype that allows Colombian farmers to improve their current value chain. This will include training guides, set-up and tear down documents, and an in-country field test plan. Our expected final prototype should be inexpensive, easily replicated, and locally sourced. The current constraints of this project are cost, limited environmental resources, and time.
