    Great! Like to see what kind of (right) numbers that will make this model profitable? I have heard risks are pretty high on commercial scale and many have fold after a few years unless you have deep pockets. Have you done risk analysis?

    Thank you for this! Im a pioneer at OneCommunityRanch (dot org) and we are planning to build a sustainable city and use aquaponics to grow much of our food. Thank you for your videos as it helps tremendously in our research. Please check out our website and tell us what you think. We are still accepting members and consultant partners too. We are planning to help change the world showing a new way to live and share all plans open source. Peace!

    Found this just now; apparently blue crabs (Maryland style) can tolerate very low salinity levels:
    Search 'science daily turning freshwater farm ponds into crab ponds 0ct. 3, 1980'

    Durn youtube won't let me put in urls..

    (cont). Get a hold of a marine biologist to help you with the fish production and balance. Also, think about adding crab to the mix; you'd need to have a salt water environment but with the price of crab meat…(!) Good luck, and wow, good on ya. I'm thinking of the same idea here in Oregon, our economy is horrible but the weather here is ideal for any kind of farming. I'd prefer this to having to plow up the ground.

    Bravo! Couple ideas; it's really dark in that building but you have lots of windows; can you take a cue from indoor grow ops (pot) and cover EVERYTHING with mylar to reflect light? It would cut down on the need for electrical lights and thus your costs, too. Also, pumps from aquariums that work by bubbling up water to a higher elevation would both oxygenate and move water at less cost than the powerful pumps you're using now. Might not be enough for that amount of fish, though. (cont.)

    You guys have a great idea and it's great to see other people my age stepping forward with both aquaponics and into business! I am planning to do something similar in a completely different part of the US, but I can't wait to see what else you guys have done! 🙂

    WOW! Your innovative and creative thinking has created a healthy way of farming. Looking forward to seeing more!
