Hello Aquaponics community,

I am looking for someone with experience in building large scale pond aquaponic systems, to help me design a terraced aquaponic garden. I have recently accepted to take on a project constructing an aquaponic system which will supply fresh produce to a restaurant on the property in California. The owner is in the process of installing an 8,000 gallon infinity fish pond which will cascade into a trough. The water will then flow to a series of terraced grow beds which will be installed on a slope in front of the pond. I have a few years of experience but not enough to design a system like this. If anyone thinks they are ambitious and experienced enough to take on this exciting project please email me at

Today I started a We the People Petition to encourage the U.S. military to create new job opportunities in aquaponics. There is a clear shortage of jobs in aquaponics at present, but by signing this petition, hopefully a presidential response (100,000 signatures for that) will bring about a higher awareness of such a cool and promising food production system. Below is a link to the petition, takes a couple minutes. Thanks

Hi everyone,

I'm currently a junior horticulture student at Temple University. I run the aquaponics lab we have here on campus, and was looking to gain as much knowledge in the field as possible before graduating. Specifically, I am looking to get an internship with aquaponics and/or possibly searching for job opportunities. If anyone knows of, or has any information regarding this, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks and have a great day!

Hello! I've been looking into aquaponics for about a year now and wish to make it a life career. I've started one but havent been able to complete it. I am looking for a job/internship, willing to work 40+ hours in exchange for only knowledge, a place to stay, and food. I will relocate, currently living in PA. I have recommendations from my previous employer of over 5 years. In short I need a foot in the door and I want to make it life work to build units in needy countries. I am interested in crawfish/rice aquaponics as well. Please contact me at Thanks!

There is also free fresh fish as we need to keep the system in balance through-out the year. 

Please email me if you are interested or someone you know would like to meet to see if we are a match.

Hi all,

I recently graduated with a masters in sustainable aquaculture systems from University of Plymouth (UK), and am currently looking for a job in aquaponics.  My thesis was on the use of vermicultured worms as a diet of NFT systems.  My background is in aquaculture, but learned a lot and grew very fond of aquaponics during my thesis.  I have experience building/ maintaining systems and growing a few different species of fish.  If anyone has any openings please let me know and I can email/private message you my resume. I am currently located in the northeast US but am more than willing to travel.

Thank you for the reply, Paul.  I am looking into doing just that.

@James and Jason,

From my experience working in California make sure you get paid or have some type of written contract for your employment/volunteer time if you end up working for a commercial aquaponics operation. With all that experience you should just consider leasing some space and starting your own small setup and grow instead of wasting your time laboring for someone else. Just my two cents.

I just relocated to Southern California after a four year sailing adventure and am interested in any job opportunities within the Aquaponics field. I became interested in Aquaponics three years ago while visiting Tonga.  I was able to create a 2000 liter back yard system on the island of Babanga, just outside of Gizo in the Soloman Islands. Shortly afterwards I was offered the opportunity to work with the Fisheries Department in Papua New Guinea.  However, I was sailing then and unable to move forward.


I am interested in all phases of Aquaponics and would prefer a position that will not only further my own knowledge, but also assist me in setting up systems that will provide an educational aspect for people that are interested in self-sustainability both here and abroad.


Thank you,


James K.

Hello All, 

I'm moving to the Bay Area at the end of February. I am looking to continue my work in aquaponics and aquaponic based education.  I have 4 years of experience including aquaponic farm management experience. I've designed and built systems from 10 to 5000 gallons. I've built systems in the United States and India. 

Any leads and opportunities would be helpful. If you are in the bay area and would like to talk aquaponics with me, send me a message and we'll set something up. I will be in town Feb 6th - 11th.

@ Jonathan Smillie lookup Charlie Price at the University of Stirling in Stirling, Scotland. He and a few UK companies up there are into aquaponics / new growing methods.

Comment by Jonathan Smillie on January 3, 2014 at 11:59am

Hi everyone, I'm new to the source and aquaponics, and as yet have little to no experience but I'm looking to get involved however I can! Are there any members with knowledge regarding aquaponic operations and opportunities in the UK?

Great to see the beginnings of such a vibrant, active, and global community.

I am an aquaponics enthusiast graduating from the University of Illinois with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in May of 2014. I'm looking for contract or full-time work for an aquaponics or hydroponics operation, with entrepreneurial aspirations as well. 

If you are looking for a general engineer, someone who can make 3D models, or design your pumping and HVAC systems, I can help. My skill set is more specifically aimed at automation. If you know what your environment needs to be (ex. pH, lighting, pumping, etc), I can design and implement a control system to automate it for you.

Any contact is welcome, from simple exchanging of ideas to possible employment, my email is:

Good Day All,

 I am currently looking for paid summer 2014 internship opportunities (May thru August). My name is Kenneth J Roche’ (Kenny) from Denver, Co. and I am  2nd. yr. Doctoral student at UNL Doctor of Plant Health Program (DPH).  †DPH is a professional doctorate program with a comprehensive approach to plants and agriculture. The program emphasizes a broad interdisciplinary education across all plant-related disciplines, practical learning, experience through internships, and research.

My focus and interest lies within small scale urban/peri-urban sustainable food production (<5 acres). I am particularly interested in urban homesteading that includes small livestock, vegetable production, hoophouse/greenhouse and aquaponics. In other words year around food production. I will send my resume to interested parties

Please feel free to reach out to me with questions, comments or suggestions.
