AQUAPONICS TECHNOLOGY & DESIGN WORKSHOP FALL 2014

The Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems Aquaponics Technology and Design Workshop is a 4 ½ day workshop on November 4-8, 2014 that covers every aspect of commercial aquaponics. Topics covered & activities include: UVI Aquaponic System & UVI-based system, fish production, marketing and economics, plant production, hands-on production, Green Sky Growers Rooftop Greenhouse tour, “Behind the Seeds” tour at the land at Epcot. You'll get hands-on instruction from the Pentair AES team and some of the industry's most renowned experts such as Dr. James Rakocy, Dr. Wilson Lennard and Dr. Fred Petitt. "Teaching at the aquaponics course sponsored by Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems (PAES) was a real treat for me because PAES employees have an incredible depth of experience and knowledge that they share with their students as they guide them through all phases of constructing and operating an aquaponic system to establish a successful hobby or business.” - Dr. James Rakocy, "Father of Aquaponics" A few topics we will be covering during the workshop are construction techniques and operation, pump set-up and plumbing with hands-on assembly, water quality tips and nutrient dynamics. Plus you’ll receive a walk-through of Green Sky Growers rooftop farm and access to the "Behind the Seeds" tour at the land of Epcot!
