Thanks Jon, Brian and to the team that pulled off a great conference. A lot of information could be gathered. Could not network enough but am sure we will soon be able to getting to know of each other. Very happy to have taken up the membership and be part of the ever-growing aquaponic community. I am sure this membership will be of immense benefit. I am based in Gaborone, Botswana and am proud of my 20-month old home-based aquaponics system that has matured very nicely in a greenhouse. I am still learning new things regularly about aquaponics.

Hi everyone!

Nice to be a part of this community. I’m Pierre Foucard, from France. I work as a R&D engineer/project manager in aquaculture through a french research program made with different technical and research institutions.

We work on different topics:
-Data acquisition on nutrient flows dynamics inside an aquaponics system
-Evaluation of phyto-bioremediation performance of aquaponics
-Development of design tool through a mathematical model
-Data acquisition on yield, nutritional and sensorial quality of the products
-Test of different plants cultivation systems
-Valorization and/or post treatment of solid compounds (aquaculture sludges)
-Life Cycle Analysis approach (LCA)
-Techno economical approaches

Here are some pictures about one of our pilot scale aquaponics system.








We are open to R&D collaboration and/or simple discussions with other research institutes!

Good Morning Gentlemen –

Juli has asked me to pursue some information from the AA Conference. Well done, by the way! I found it a great deal easier, and friendlier, than last year.

We would like a list or transcript of our presentations with attendee name and email addresses. We, of course, screen shot them, but it wasn’t an accurate representation of the full names and contacts.

Is such a document available, or is there a place you can send me to pull the information?

We truly wish you well, and thank you for your efforts for this community. Please call upon me if I can be of any assistance!

Very truly yours,

Ms. Patti A. Hamilton

Glad to hear you enjoyed the conference! We enjoyed seeing you there.

That level of reporting for your sessions is actually a very expensive upgrade from hopin itself that we’re not hoping into… So we don’t have access to that unfortunately. Screenshots should be good tho!

Hope that answers your question! Cheers.

Hello Hamid,
When I was talking about partnerships it meant that we seek for building research programs and collaboration between researchers on aquaculture/aquaponics. We are not meant to provide training or direct technical assistance to growers worldwide…!
Take a look at the wide documentation on aquaponics that you can find online, there is a lot of documents to read just on typing the right keywords.
Best regards.
Pierre

This is a suggestion @Pierre_Foucard , @jon : I think it would be great if we can develop a catalogue of aquaponic farms/Universities/community centres that we can partner with for trainings. So that such people like @Hamid can find a training centre close to his location in Morocco. I know a few people (even on this platform, myself inclusive) who will benefit from such arrangements. Maybe the leadership of this AA community could look into that.
