The three-day course will provide in-depth knowledge of the principles and practical application of the aquaponic system that has been developed at the University of the Virgin Islands.
Participants will be introduced to the system design that maintains water quality by hydroponic plant culture (aquaponics). Fish production instruction will be conducted using both the Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) and red tilapia. Hydroponic plant production will focus on vegetables, culinary herbs and ornamental flowers.Download as iCal
