Commercial Aquaponics

Ok, so maybe you aren’t quite ready for a commercial aquaponic system but it’s a good to take a virtual tour and see how these commercial systems differ from the DIY backyard aquaponic systems.   Here are some great video tours of commercial growers successfully leveraging aquaponics in profitable organic farms.
