A chance for the aquaponics heads of Bristol to get together as well as an intro to the forthcoming 12 week Introduction to Aquaponics Course. Quick presentation on what aquaponics is, finding out why aquaponics is so interesting and having a quick look at what will be covered in the 12 week programme. Should be a light hearted opportunity for meeting other people that have an interest in aquaponics in the area.
This invite is extended to aquaculture and hydroponics communities – after all we’ve rather a lot in common!
Drinks and nibbles will be provided :) though places as always are limited -
Please register here (Free) so we know how many people to expect :)
7-9pm The Pithay Studios, All Saints Street, Bristol, BS12LZ
These days all sizes of aquaponics holdings should be registered with the Fish Health Inspectorate. As soon as your project is big enough / undertaking certain trading activities, you become subject to policy and compliance with the Fish Health Inspectorate managing this process through CEFAS.

Through the inspectorate’s work CEFAS improves businesses’ ability to trade openly outside the UK, reduce their losses from disease and help protect a valuable natural resource. Continue reading
We are pleased to announce our 2014 Introduction to Aquaponics Course will run over 12 weeks from October. It brings together experts in all the important aspects of aquaponic farming from tank to fork, and provides a good framework for someone wanting to set up a system of their own or train in the basics to run an aquaponic system. Check out the course on our courses page, or download the 2014 Introduction to Aquaponics Course Flyer. To register or for more info email firstname.lastname@example.org
It seems there is demand for a repeat of last year’s introduction to aquaponics course – we haven’t really thought about advertising a course, but a few people have been in touch so if we can get together a big enough group then we can afford to run the course again. If you are interested in learning about commercial aquaponics; check out last year’s syllabus here, and get in touch. Bests! Alice and the Bristol Fish Project Team
