All over the Upper Midwest region of the United States, indoor aquaponics farming is catching on. Fish and plants are living and growing together in old warehouses and abandoned factories. In Chicago, The Plant is growing up in an old meat packing facility and testing LED growlights and new control schemes In Milwaukee, Sweet Water Organics is trying to resurrect itself outdoors after its indoor system failed last spring. And in St. Paul, the team at Urban Organics is building the world’s largest indoor aquaponics operation in the old Hamm’s brewery. Urban Organics plans to open in November we’ll be there every step of the way, documenting progress with our cameras.

    While technologically and otherwise interesting, I simply cannot possibly imagine the products of these sorts of places can actually compete with conventional farming methods except were the products of conventional farms are artificially deprecated such as at "organic" farm markets, "fair trade" anti-GMO food co-ops, and other religious based food purity fads.
