VANCOUVER-AQUAPONICS-WORKSHOP-NOAThe 2 day workshop will be taking place in Vancouver at the University of British Columbia on Feb 24, 25, 2014 plus a 1 day tour on Feb 26.

It is an exciting opportunity for rare guided tours of local aquaponic systems and farms in the Vancouver area. There will be additional tours for those who would like to extend their stay on the 27th on Vancouver Island.
The tour on the 26th is included with the registration.

VANCOUVER-AQUAPONICS-WORKSHOPWe have an excellent line up of speakers:

Registration information can be found at this link:


Please contact us at your earliest convenience if you have an existing, profitable aquaponics business. We have an investor who is interested if your business model works.
Other aquaculture projects are also eligible and there is no *requirement* that the location of the facilities be in Vancouver.
As expected, investors are seeking real value (facebook aside LOL) for their dollars (in this case, American ones) and looking for Food & Energy companies to invest in. Please note that this does not apply to startups, profitable companies looking for expansion only.

Please give us your ‘elevator pitch’ if you are interested.

Vancouver “City Farmer” Features Kenyan Aquaponics Project

Aquaponic Greenhouse Prototype
for Kenya

This Vancouver website feature an article about an aquaponics system for Kenya using elevated ferro-cement flood tank technology developed by Travis W. Hughey.

The article raises a valid point: aquaponics is simple and it works… so why hasn’t it caught on in a bigger way?

Why Richmond Restaurants Are Buying From Vancouver Island?!

There is a huge demand for fresh/live Tilapia here in Vancouver – especially from Chinese groceries & restaurants.

So… why is the supply coming from Vancouver Island?

Because they HAVE tilapia!

Kudos to this awesome Vancouver Island company, Redfish Ranch, for actually doing it – a big challenge for them is the transport of live fish slooshing around in the truck on the BC Ferries system, but challenges aside, it seems there is more demand than supply at the moment.
