I would be in for the tour.  Would like to have you all come see the gardens at the school. We have aquaponics/hydroponics/square foot garden and more.  Thanks Jeff I will join!

Comment by Sheri Schmeckpeper on Sunday

Another tour would be great! Maybe we can finish up with some BBQ tilapia this time.

Comment by Dr. George B. Brooks, Jr. on Sunday

Just as an FYI, the Tucson Aquaponics Project uses this same self guided tour process. 

Comment by Kim Romen on Sunday

I'm 100% in for a tour!!!  for me, the sooner the better.  i'm wanting to build on to the system really soon but want to see some other systems first ideally.  it's still not blazing hot outside, too.  :)

I like the idea of another tour/get together

Yes, I have fish Sheri, send them my way, I'm happy to help.  I think the brainstorming AP 202 class sounds like a great time.

@ George I can have the gammarus on Tuesday if that is okay for you? Jim 480.257.5214

Just saw Dr Brooks post about the greater phoenix pond society tour.  Got me to thinking if we should do another group hugs tour or maybe this time open it up for anyone who has interest in aquaponics this time.  Had a great time last year, what do you all think?

Comment by Sheri Schmeckpeper on Saturday

Jim, do you have an update on Bob? I may have another referral for your fish. Glad to hear you have some again.

Stephanie, we may need to create our own 202 class. I think a group brainstorming would be better than a formal class. People can bring their issues and all minds can work them through.

Hi Jim, I would like enough gammarus for 2 DWC raft beds. They are both 200 gallons each @ 12 inches deep. I see alot of waste in them even though i also have a grow bed filtering it.

@ Dr. Brooks

I have fry about 1.5"- 2" inches long right now, I can easily supply a hundred without any problem, when would you like to get them?

Comment by Dr. George B. Brooks, Jr. on Saturday

Thanks Jim. What size are they? I may need 100.

The aquaculture association is our own local effort to move things forward. As with any broad multidisciplinary group it will have interest sections starting likely with aquaponics since it is aquaponics folks reviving the organization. It does not preclude or prevent your membership in any additional organization you wish. In that the organization is not formed yet I would suggest all attend the organizational meeting in June to help define what it can and will be and what benefits can developed.
