YSHS Aquaponics

Yeppoon State High School has been branching into the field of aquaponics and is teaching students about this budding area of agriculture with an interesting program in the school that integrates hydroponics into their existing aquaculture system.

The entire system is housed under cover with artificial lighting so that all the elements can be controlled for the students to experiment with. YSHS staff Charlie and Tamara have been working on building a number of different hydroponic systems that students can use to learn about the pros and cons of different Hydroponic and Aquaponic growing techniques and the results that the kids have come up with have been outstanding.

The plant production is tied back into the aquaculture system with Barramundi and red claw generating the nutrients the run the system.
