Aquaponics combines the soil-less growing technique of hydroponics with fish farming. Fish farming is gaining popularity in the state of Indiana and this concept of plant growth along with the fish farming technique is a topic many are wanting more information on. Come and enjoy this introduction to Aquaponics at the 2015 Indiana Small Farm Conference shared by: Bob Rode, Purdue aquaculture lab manager; Dr. Kwamena Quagrainie, aquaculture marketing director; and John Woodbury, Nature's Gift Aquaponics.
