This book gives a fantastic explanation of what you'll need to set up your own aquaponics system, including the benefits and drawbacks of various materials, size ratios, etc. The information is comprehensive and extremely useful - everything from what size tanks one should use to the pros and cons of using lava rocks, gravel, etc. as a medium, to what you can grow to feed the fish.
There weren't any major drawbacks to the book, but it seemed like the first third of it was a discussion of the environmental and food sustainability issues facing the world. While this is related to aquaponics, this section was old and common sense information that should have taken a couple paragraphs, not 33% of the book. Regardless, the other 67% was invaluable.
about concepts without sounding dull or uninspired.
At some point in life I will pursue aquaponics as a hobby and will be referring to this book consistently. I highly recommend this book as a starter guide to aquaponics as well as a point of reference.
I had just finished reading "Mini-Farming: Self-Sufficiency on ¼ acre", and was ready to get my greenhouse started. In the midst of applying the material in that first rate book (you should read it and Maximizing Your Mini Farm: Self-Sufficiency on 1/4 Acre as well), I got started on the aquaponics book. The books, gardening styles, and logic mesh well together. SO, while I have not yet gotten the aquaponics installation up and running (one thing that does not come with the books is time), that is where all of this reading and preparation is heading.
Especially if you are inclined toward organics, this is the book you want to read. The author doesn't just provide instructions, she explains what is going on and why. She also provides alternatives. You end up with the information you need, enabling you to make informed decisions. Especially if the weather in your area is unpredictable, this can let you grow your crops in stable and controlled conditions. That's a good thing....
It is very informative but does not cover all the aspects of doing your garden along with problems the fish might have other than the normal low ph, ammonia, nitrites and nitrates.
Im sure the author could not cover ever aspect in this book such as fish ich and how to treat naturally, which ended up being my issues.
I use this book as my go-to and also the many great websites that are out there....this is definitely a book Im glad I purchased as it really taught me a great deal but just understand as with most books you will still have to do your own research but will at least have a great guideline for what else you might need to know.
She does give a lot of resources you can use and has her own blog.
