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!

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.  


Comment by James Knull on January 31, 2014 at 3:07pm

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

Comment by Paul Phillip Meyer on January 30, 2014 at 8:46pm

@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.
