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.
