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. http://dph.unl.edu/program

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.

Kenny

Hi everyone,

I recently graduated from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. While I was there I did some aquaponics research. One project was designed to assess the feasibility of harvesting red worms from vermicompost as a supplemental feed for tilapia. I later presented the results at the ESA meeting this summer. After graduation I also worked in the biology department and did some work on a aquaponics system that was purchased from Healing Haiti to be used as a model system for their system in Haiti. I worked with another student to set up the system and manage the day to day operation. After gaining this experience and reading some of the literature that I found on aquaponics I have become very interested in possibly pursuing a masters degree in aquaponics. I would first like to look for a position in the field to gain some more experience. If anyone has any possible openings or opportunities my email is berg8374@stthomas.edu, I would appreciate hearing from any of you. Thanks, Isaac.

I'm looking to hire an aquaponics expert or enthusiast for a short term upcoming job. Our goal is create an aquaponics system that can work around a rotating plant based system. If you have experience with mechanical engineering that would be a major bonus. You can get more information about this system at our website: www.greenhouseintl.org   Keep in mind that the pictured design will have a separate fish room below the main work area. At this point we are designing the blueprints. That is the main objective. Please let us know how much you would expect for compensation for your services. Potentially this could turn into a long term job, that is our vision, that this could be a job that many people could do one day soon.

I know that FarmTek is looking for a new hydroponic and Aquaponic greenhouse manager. I would highly suggest that you contact them.

I am a M.S. candidate and graduate assistant (intro. to ecology and zoology lab instructor) at the University of Central Missouri within the Dept. of Biology and Agriculture. I conducted my thesis research on sweet basil production in aquaponic and hydroponic systems. I have experience with channel catfish, blue tilapia, and trout management, as well as RAS. I will be graduating in December, and currently am looking for an aquaponic related position after graduation. Feel free to send me an email at dunwoody@ucmo.edu. I can send my resume and C.V. as well. Thank you!

hello keith bowen,

if you find yourself needing further education, accreditation, and job placement assistance (we offer to course graduates) take a look at what bioponics institute has to offer: http://bioponicsinstitute.com/bioponics-career-training/college-deg...  the spring course starts jan. 21. all the best to you!

         I am 47 years old with a diverse background and hands on  experience in carpentry and landscaping. I have owned my own business in the building and remodeling / home improvement industry, and have several years experience working for beautifulgardenslandscaping.com.  I  also have pond building experience including aquascapes products.

       I have been researching and building my own backyard  aquaponics systems for the past 2 years. I definitely have the fever. My first system was a 300 gallon system with native pumpkin-seed fish and a gravel ebb and flo system elevated on my deck. It was a great success and I enjoyed produce all summer long.  I live in the New England area and I am presently working on a system design to incorporate fish tanks in my basement with  thermal mass and a greenhouse outside of the basement window. I read and learn things on a daily basis and am linked into some the most prominent blogs. I am also dedicated to sound nutrition and the use of  heirloom variety seeds and  native plants in diet. A true permaculturist at heart.

       Presently I find myself at a crossroads. My present employment is a retail position with limited opportunity for me to excel at my forte.  I am considering any and all possibilities including relocation. I am seeking a growing company in aquaponics to learn from and contribute to in both hands on and technical applications. I am eager to learn the business and would welcome the abilty to futher my education as well.

        I do presently own a home and would need some time to relocate. If you are interested let me know and I'll give you an email and number . thanks

Not in a position to work or am looking for any, but it's interesting following the interest over the past two years. Would love to hear if and how things have worked out for various people that have posted on this Jobs section of the forum and get a feel for what the workforce is becoming. Maybe just a reply on how it has worked out for them.
Comment by Allen Pattillo on August 21, 2013 at 8:52am

I am currently an aquaponics researcher in Iowa, looking at the feasibility and economic viability of aquaponics in the Midwest.  I am running 3 replicated 190 gal systems that I designed, growing basil with channel catfish under glass.  I am looking to get back into the Southeastern US near my family.  Any help in getting there would be much appreciated.  My email is dapattillo@gmail.com

Comment by Max Ferris on July 24, 2013 at 2:46am
My experience with Aquaponics mostly comes from my previous job as a site manager at Maui Aquaponics. Maui Aquaponics was the biggest Aquaponics system in the state of Hawaii. We had more than fifteen thousand Tilapia running our system and over 6,736 square feet in grow area with our own hatchery. I am currently unemployed and looking for a job on Maui. I am not totally stuck on working with just Aquaponics. I love working with all types of organic farming and sustainable establishments. Also I have a parcel of 1 acre of land that I have permission to use for Aquaponics that has all the most important resources for a successful system, but have not come across the funding yet. I have been in search for a source of funding for about a year now and have not come across the right resource. If anyone knows a source, or knows of a possible job for my qualifications please let me know. Mahalo for your time, Max max.ferris@gmail.com 808-870-8189

Hello folks. I just bought an 8 acre greenhouse full of hydroponic roses in Santa Cruz, CA, and will begin immediately converting the whole place to aquaponic vegetable production. I am looking for a few dozen interns for a 3 month stay, that willing to work insanely hard for free. :D

I will provide on-site dorms, food staples, showers, and a common kitchen. Paid positions will be hired from intern graduates. This is a big project, and may even be the largest commercial AP greenhouse out there (somebody please tell me if you know of another). At capacity, we will be pitting out nearly 1 million heads of leafy greens per month. That's a lot of feeding, seeding, harvesting, and delivery.

Requirements: a willing spirit, willing to learn, work, and have a hell of a good time doing it.


Shoot me an email to jon@fishnetaquaponics.com
