Published on: 05/10/2017
Author/s : Thierry Chopin and Stacy Murray / Canadian Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture Network, University of New Brunswick, Saint John, Canada.

At the University of New Brunswick in Canada, researchers have developed a pilot-scale aquaponics system to select plants that are best adapted to efficiently recapture nutrients from salmon hatchery effluents. Along the way they’ve developed a novel substrate on which to grow the plants. In many aquaponic systems, it is common to use a substrate such as foam, coconut coir, rock-wool or exp...
