You may at some or the other times feel the urge to do something that can give bucks in bulk. There are many businesses to begin with and Aquaponics is one of them.
Our system plumbing ends at the drains of the filter tanks.
You will need to supply the PVC pipe and connectors to route the air between the air pump or blower to the tanks that require air. We do not supply this because it is impossible for us to project how you will rout the airlines.
In most cases, this product is available locally. We do provide specs, so you purchase the right items. If you have a concern about finding the straight lengths of PVC pipe or the polystyrene sheets locally, we can provide a quote to have them delivered to you.
You can look at the aquaponics. For a commercial operation, there are other things you will need to make it a complete business. For instance, a delivery vehicle, office equipment, packing tables, sink, storage cabinets, scale, produce cooler, etc.
What crops can I grow? What is most profitable? Commercial systems are generally larger and designed to produce a great deal of lettuce, greens and leafy crops in one very efficient system.
Commercial growers usually grow all leafy crops and sell most of what they grow wholesale to grocers, institutions or brokers. It is a patented system that drastically increases plant production and reduces or eliminates any waste.
Then, clear, nutrient-rich water is returned to the main system to increase plant production. Our accelerated plant nursery dramatically increases plant production using a 2-stage transplant method. This moves your crops through the system faster and, therefore, allows you to harvest and sell more plants every day.
Do I need a fish nursery? Our commercial systems each have four, six or eight fish tanks, which are stocked using a staggered method one tank every weeks when using tilapia. We recommend stocking the tanks with 50 gram fingerlings. This is a very efficient method of starting with fry very young fish and growing them to stocking size.
Our fish nurseries include plant grow beds. Do I need a purge system? If you are raising fish to eat, we highly recommend a purge system. Using our purge system and purging techniques, your harvested fish will have a clean, fresh taste. The meat will have a firm texture. What is the seed germination system?
We recommend starting all plants from seed in an aquaponic system and it is most efficient to start the seeds in a smaller germination system than in your main culture system.Not sure where to start? Our services are all connected, in most cases clients use parts of all three services.
Often starting with the development of a business plan, followed by the actual purchase of materials and finaly an on-farm training for all staff members.
The aquaponics business is a practical way to earn money with a simple but effective agricultural method, where farmers can raise and sell fish and vegetable products at a much higher rate. Determine your Net Profit and ROI for your Commercial Aquaponics Farm.
Ok, so the question everyone asks is, “How much can I earn?” There are a lot of variables in that equation (climate, location, infrastructure, utility costs, labor costs, marketing methods, management abilities, etc), but we can give you some guidance.
