Aquaponics Resources

Aquaponic Resources:

Green Phoenix Farms is pleased to provide a list of reference materials for those who wish to learn more about Aquaponics. The idea developed because of a presentation at the 2014 Missouri Organic Association Conference. Attendees wanted a list of resources that could be used to seek out reliable information on the field of Aquaponics. As the featured presenter, Adam Cohen was happy to oblige, and from that “seed,” Green Phoenix has continued to compile a larger list of easily available helpful sources, resources, and information. This list is not “complete,” and probably never will be because the field of Aquaponics continues to change and develop. That is part of the appeal and part of the joy of being involved in this dynamic, evolving venture – or should we say “adventure.”

Included on this listing are firms that Green Phoenix Farms works with. We vouch for their knowledge and we are proud to be associated with them. If you have a name, a supplier, a service firm or a product you would like to recommend, please leave a comment, or send an email to info@greenphoenixfarms so that we can expand the list.

Remember, our goal is to assist you to Grow Healthy Food. So, while it is our business, it is also our pleasure! We are happy to help out.

Our philosophy is: “The more we work together, the better things get for everyone.”
