I've ben reading a lot about aquaponics lately. HEre are some thoughts:
- Extremely high yield for area. This means you can possibly even hide it better, or be located in less favorable terrain for traditional growing.
- Protein production thats not beans
- Seems to be fun and interesting (perhaps this is a geek thing)
- Most fish species appear to not breed in the tank, which means once fingerlings are no longer available the system breaks down.
- Mechanic and electronic devices (solar panels, etc). Things to break. Tanks that can leak.
- Costly. If the same money was spent on Mylar sealed rice, you would have a heck of a lot more food. IN fact I'd argue, that for this price, you could afford enough rice to eat it every day for 1-2 decades!
- Possibly needing consumables, minor like ph\nitro testing kits. Fish still need to eat something.
What else do you guys thing? Possibility or gimmick?
