About the instructor

Ahmed is the founder of Urbanspace Aquaponics which designed, built and operated a commercial aquaponics facility located in Vancouver, BC. with over 2,500 sqft of growing space producing over 3000 vegetables a week.

Ahmed, holds a Master's degree in environmental engineering and has a background in private and government consulting. As an environmental consultant Ahmed tackled critical environmental issues facing governments and the private sector related to water management. Inspired by the potential of aquaponics to become the future of sustainable agriculture Ahmed decided to forgo his engineering career and became a full-time farmer. After successfully selling the aquaponics farm Ahmed now teaches, designs and build aquaponic farms for his clients in North America, Africa and India.

Ahmed believes aquaponics and similar technologies will drive the evolution of food production in the 21st century. With food scarcity becoming a pressing global issue and land becoming a dwindling resource, aquaponics offers a solution that could change the way we think about food production.



Welcome to the course page of our brand new course in Advanced Aquaponics Design. This course covers all engineering and mathematic aspects of designing and building a small to medium scale commercial aquaponics system. This course does not discuss backyard or home scale system design. Although, there is no prerequisite for this course it is highly recommended that the Fundamentals of Aquaponics course: How To Grow With Aquaponics is taken before enrolling in this course. 

This course contains materials derived from aquaculture and hydroponics literature in addition to design parameters developed by Urbanspace Aquaponics. This course might be a good fit for you if you:

  • Are looking to design and build your own aquaponics facility based on the UVI model.

  • Have planned either an indoor or outdoor system independent of climatic conditions.

  • Want to get a solid understanding of how aquaponics functions and how you can master all aspects of aquaponics design

  • Are tired of searching the internet for answers in so many different places?

This is an advanced level course that explores and breaks down all aspect of designing and building a small commercial aquaponics facility discussing in detail the materials required, component sourcing, component sizing, system ratios, and parameters used in developing both the aquaculture and hydroponic component of aquaponics. 

The theory in the course is practically demonstrated by the use of specific design examples that walk you through each step of the design process using a case study from one of our projects. The material is put together specifically with the intention to give you the information you need for the "How-To's" of your aquaponics project and covers more than many of the 2-3 day long workshops offered for a fraction of the price.

2 in 1 Design Calculator Tool

An excel design tool that helps you put theory into practice.

($39 value FREE)




Downloadable Design Calculator Tool ($39 Value FREE): this calculator is designed to calculate all the design parameters needed to build an aquaponics system by using only the dimensions of your grow beds. The calculator is an excel worksheet divided into 2 separate calculator sheets:

  1. Backyard Design Calculator: calculates all the design parameters needed to build a backyard system by just the input of the bed width, length and the number of grow beds.
  2. Small Commercial Design Calculator: calculates all the design parameters needed to build a small commercial system with just the input of the bed width, length and the number of grow beds.
