BioShelters was one of the first large aquaponic farms and you are correct it was in Amherst, MA. It closed many years ago, which is the case with most of the very early adaptations of aquaponics which were not very efficient or profitable because of the complex and unproven designs. It did, however demonstrate the potential of commercial aquaponics and the founders are due credit for their contributions to our industry.
We publsihed the Aquaponics Journal from 1997 - 2003, 62 issues in all, and there were articles about BioShelters as well as many of the other pioneers of aquaponics. All of the back issues of the Aquaponics Journal are still available on our website www.aquaponics.com
