Aquaponics facility management data

It’s highly advisable to record every Aquaponics facility management data in order to enhance the efficiency of your systems. In fact, as we use to repeat anyone can run an aquaponic system. The true challenge consists in unleashing its productive potential. Especially when you’re carrying out trials in terms of DIY system designs and species of fish or crayfish as well as varieties of plants not grown in Aquaponics yet.

Therefore I’ll share with you excerpts of our Aquaponics facility management data journal. So that you’ll keep track with us of the developments of the crops grown and fish and crayfish reared in our Aquaponics facility.
