Aquaponics Workshop

Delaware State University


Aquaponics 101

A workshop series offered by the DSU Cooperative Extension Aquaculture Technical Assistance and Outreach Program 

Come join us as we explore aquaponics, the integration of aquaculture and hydroponics.  The primary goal of the Aquaponics 101 workshop series is to help new and prospective aquaculture producers gain the practical knowledge and skills they will need to be successful in aquaponics.  We will offer a total of nine sessions covering everything from system design to feeding to processing.  Make plans to attend one or all of this year’s classes.  Unless otherwise noted, classes will begin at 4 PM in the DSU aquaponics greenhouse.
