Very good so far. Like that this course doesn't have a lot of fluff, just gets right to it. I especially like that each section does not have repetitive opening sequences which get annoying super fast.

I really enjoyed this corse it was very interesting and informative the calculator has been a massive help in determining the size I could make my grow beds for the fish ponds I already had and also for the amount of fish that is needed.

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.

You can reach me via email anytime of the week for any questions, comments or suggestions.

The course is designed for someone with or without the basic understanding of how aquaponics works and also for those who are looking to enhance their knowledge of the science, the operations and the design process of building an aquaponics farm, both backyard and small commercial scale. This course contains materials derived not only from the experience of running a small commercial farm but also from academic research on aquaponics conducted in the past two decades.

  • Are you looking to master the key operational techniques of aquaponics required to operate a backyard or commercial size system?

  • Get a solid understanding of how aquaponics functions and how you can master all aspects of growing in aquaponics?

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

There are several resources on the internet that help you learn the basics of aquaponics but in this course we will dive deeper into the science behind aquaponics, how to create an optimal environment for your symbiotic ecosystem, understand fish and fish husbandry so you can produce market ready fish, plant nutrients and how to create an optimal balance so you can maximize both plant and fish growth, pest management and control so you can protect your investment and finally we will put all this newly acquired knowledge into a case study that shows you exactly how to design a small commercial size aquaponics system. 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.
