There are so many great resources available on the internet, I thought that I would begin to compile them together here on our website. To that end, here is a great presentation on the operation and production capabilities of the UVI Aquaponic system. This is the system that has spawned most of the commercial facilities here in the United States, and I don’t think that it would be much of a stretch to say that this particular system design has influenced an entire generation (or more) of Aquaponic enthusiasts.
Dr. Jim Rakocy developed this system through a massive amount of trial and error during his years at UVI, and Charlie Schultz worked together with Dr. Rakocy for many years. This presentation is 50+ slides devoted to a discussion of the current (at the time) operation of the system and it discusses the overall design and operation, as well as the yields and capabilities of the system.
This is an excellent resource that anyone interested in Aquaponics should keep track of.
