A lack of reliable information for raising fish and vegetables in the cool climates of North America and Europe has been a major stumbling block. The Aquaponic Farmer is the game changer. Built around a proven 120-foot greenhouse system operable by one person, the book distills vast experience and complete step-by- step guidance for starting and running a cold-water aquaponics business. Coverage includes: A primer on cold-water aquaponics; Pros and cons of different systems; Complete design and construction of a Deep Water Culture system; Recommended and optional equipment and tools; System management, standard operating procedures, and maintenance checklists; Maximizing fish and veg production; Strategies for successful sales and marketing of fish and plants. As the only comprehensive commercial cold-water resource, The Aquaponic Farmer is essential for farmers contemplating the aquaponics market, aquaponics gardeners looking to go commercial, and anyone focused on high quality food production.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/4542490317<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Guides et manuels<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Handbooks and manuals<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4542490317#Series\/canadian_books_collection<\/a>> ; # Canadian Books Collection<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/974677101<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"The aquaponic farmer : a complete guide to building and operating a commercial aquaponic system<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1015955446<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/www.deslibris.ca\/ID\/479062<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.myilibrary.com?id=1041418<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/www.overdrive.com\/search?q=84209029-6F57-4EE2-AB4E-8BB23BCB8C2A<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=1700702<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/api.deslibris.ca\/api\/cover\/getcover?id=479062&thumbnail=true<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/api.deslibris.ca\/api\/cover\/getcover?id=479062&thumbnail=false<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.vlebooks.com\/vleweb\/product\/openreader?id=none&isbn=9781550926521<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/samples.overdrive.com\/?crid=84209029-6f57-4ee2-ab4e-8bb23bcb8c2a&.epub-sample.overdrive.com<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/rbdigital.rbdigital.com<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.deslibris.ca\/ID\/479062<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> \"https:\/\/img1.od-cdn.com\/ImageType-100\/6852-1\/{84209029-6F57-4EE2-AB4E-8BB23BCB8C2A}Img100.jpg<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/epe.lac-bac.gc.ca\/101\/200\/300\/new_society_publishers\/aquaponic_farmer\/index.html<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780865718586<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781550926521<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781771422475<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1015955446<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
