  • Greenwater RAS

    Hi All

    Some time ago Gary was doing trials on greenwater RAS, which I understood not to be the same as biofloc technology. Does anyone have any experience in this?

    Nicol...I dug up some of the Aquaponics HQ/Nation threads on greenwater and I've linked to them here for those who might be interested.

    Greenwater Aquaculture - Experimental Hybrid Greenwater System - Ravnis' Sand Bed #1

    Without reading through the threads, I can't say why my interest lapsed (but it obviously did). Looking back on it, it's probably a waystation on my journey to iAVs and waste transformation farming.

      Aquaculture in South Africa have been unable to escape infancy. Government is obviously blamed, but in my case, and probably many others, the prohibitive cost of entry is also a big issue, and even more so if you are not a landowner. These greenwater systems were interesting because the capital expenditure appeared to be lower than traditional RAS.

      Where did the conversation end?
