Electronics for aquaculture and aquaponics

I am an inventor interested in developing electronic devices to help with aquaculture, especially aquaponics. I plan to develop a lot of inexpensive devices to monitor and automate aquaponics and/or aquaculture and then write a book telling people how to build them. Does anyone have an interest in this? I would especially love to find someone in the Volusia County area of Florida who is actively working in aquaponics and would like to collaborate with me on this.

David Ball: My book on automating aquaponics is progressing. I am currently on Chapter 4. If you are interested, I can send you the book as it progresses by email as Microsoft Word file, which you can read with Open Office free software if you do not have Word. I would appreciate your feedback as you read the book, telling me what is not clear or any problems you find with the book. Basically, you would be a beta tester for the book as it progresses. You do not need to live in Florida to do this. If you would like to do this, please email me at with the subject line Aquaponics book so I will have your email address and can correspond directly with you.

Hey David

I don't live in Florida but I am very interested in what you are doing I would love to follow a group like yours if you start one I am an electrician but I play with an arduino  kit I bought and am slowly learning by utube how to do stuff, I have took a short course in electronics, I love learning stuff in this field I want to be able to automate every thing in a green house and quadraphonic environment I see a very strong need for what you are doing and for people like me wanting to get into this field with little money  we need to do as much as possible on our own and I think automation is key. Anyway I wish you the best and I hope you start a group so I can learn from people like you.

Dear David: Thank you for your kind interest in aquaculture and for being a member of the AquacutureHub. May we suggest that you bring this discussion to the Aquaculture Engineering group of interest:

Hopefully, you can find more fellow engineers on the AquacultureHub by looking for them on the membership page under 'Resources.' 

We also recommend that you'll read the FAQ under the "About Us" at the pulledown menu bar regarding posting. It will help get your message across the AquacultureHub membership.
