Environmental Conservationist Develop Sustainable Fish-Farming Aquaponic System on Campus

Posted: January 3rd, 2012

Environmental conservationists at UMass Amherst have developed a portable, sustainable fish-farming aquaponic system on campus, and they will soon duplicate the system in rural northeast Uganda. The low-maintenance, solar-powered system will improve young tilapia survival at fish farms there and provide high-quality protein for Ugandans. The system also has the potential to be deployed in compact settings: your patio, backyard or basement.
