What’s happening in aquaculture in the UK and around the world
AN aquaponics design workshop held in the south-west of England last month was hailed a success by participants.
The workshop, presented at Bicton Earth in Devon, delivered advanced training into the engineering of a commercial aquaponics system, along with aquaponics business training and product marketing.
Dr Wilson Lennard, a recognised global expert in commercial aquaponics technology and business development, presented the 16-hour, two-day workshop.
Run by Aquaponic Solutions and MacAlister Elliott & Partners in conjunction with the British Aquaponics Association, the course was designed to provide participants with all the hydraulic engineering, component choice and design tools to enable them to design and construct their own commercial aquaponic systems.
Dr Lennard hopes that commercial aquaponics will continue to be adopted in Europe and that he can return regularly in the future from his base in Australia to teach more burgeoning potential aquaponic farmers how to adopt the latest design and management principles.
