Episode 71. Aquaponics: A Primer

In this episode, Lee Rinehart, a specialist with NCAT’s ATTRA – the National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service – talks with Brian Filipowich of Anacostia Aquaponics in Washington, D.C. Lee works out of NCAT’s Northeast Regional Office in Keene, New Hampshire.

Brian has extensive experience with aquaponics systems. He and Lee discuss the history of aquaponics and its integrated production system, as well as the economic factors affecting it. Brian also has some advice about how to explore whether aquaponics is right for you without diving in head first.
