The first three days of this course (Monday-Wednesday) reviews the basic engineering principals behind a successful recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) design.  The objective of this section is to provide sufficient information so that the participant will be able to design, construct, and manage their own RAS system.  On the fourth day (Thursday), the fundamentals of growing plants using current state-of-the-art hydroponic techniques will be presented along with the design and management of these systems.  On Friday, Aquaponics as a combination of aquaculture (fish) and hydroponics (plants) will be covered and several design options explored. Basic principles of business management for the small family farm will also be reviewed by guest speaker Michael Finnegan, CEO Continental Organics LLC.
