My Aquaponics Adventures

Over a decade ago, I stumbled across a story on a frugal living forum about a bloke that would go barramundi (Asian sea bass) fishing from a deck chair on his back patio.
He didn’t live on a crocodile-infested creek in North Queensland or on a boat but in a house in suburban Brisbane on a block almost half the size of ours.
His small backyard was filled with two sizeable cut-down Colorbond rainwater tanks filled with fish, and many grow beds growing lush greenery that was waiting to be served beside some tasty barbequed fish.
Now at that point, we had grown a small amount of food using hydroponics and was very impressed with all we had produced. After reading about this chap’s successes and failures, I was sold on having a crack at this “fish powered hydroponics” game.

Over the following years, I picked up quite a bit of experience building, running and consulting on backyard aquaponic systems. The progress of our own systems, as well as any tips and tricks I've picked up along the way, have been passed on to others via our YouTube channel and Facebook page.

While social media is a great way to get the word out there to encourage folks to grow their own food, I felt an online guide would be better at delivering more detailed information that was hard to share through those platforms.

I do hope you find the guide helpful in creating your own backyard Aquaponics system from which you can share your many harvests with friends & family.
