Governments interest in aquaponics but also other advanced technologies like hydroponics or aquaculture is raising. That confirmed also interested in our consulting services for these areas last year.

Government project in Czech Republic

We have been providing our consulting services also on the czech market, where the aquaponics was a smaller part of a complex project to use efficiently the ground water. The project was combined with the energetic part and so we participated with EkoWATT the Center for Renewable Resources that won the project.

Unrealistic ideas mainly in Aquaponics

Within the consulting services we are trying to understand the client’s situation and bring the best solution for them. That often includes clarifying the situation with the advanced technologies.

We are meeting more frequently with the unrealistic ideas about the projects mainly in Aquaponics but also other production systems. The aquaponics still holds a sticker of a “perpetuum mobile” where you can combine a several kinds of plants and fish but it is a far from the truth.

Aquaponics situation

Aquaponics that combines hydroponics and aquaculture is logically more difficult because of there are 2 living organism, plants and fish, and so it needs more specialized equipment and know-how as you can see in Aquaponic scheme.

Commercial size aquaponics is can work but it is necessary to design and make the aquaponic farm very simple to reduce the risk and variable factors and this is probably the most common disillusion widespread around the word.
