In our final class of this 3-part series, you’ll learn best practices for managing an aquaponics system or farm, including troubleshooting various issues and challenges that may arise.

  • What types of fish make sense to raise based on your environment?
  • How do you attract the bacteria needed to break down your fish waste?
  • How can you react to specific situations such as sick fish or low pH without negatively impacting the whole system?

We’ll also head to Oko Farms for a hands-on tour led by founder Yemi Amu, where you’ll get to observe this unique outdoor aquaponics facility up-close.
