Aquaponics Project

This is a cooperative effort between fisheries and aquaculture students and plant science students to integrate fish, their waste products and plant production.  Tilapia are grown in 300 gallon tanks in closed recirculation and fed a low protein diet.  Green leafy lettuce and herbs are grown in NFT (nutrient film) troughs using the water from the tilapia.  Tilapia and lettuce are harvested and sold to the campus and outside restaurants.
