Leonardo visit to IGFF

IGFF hosted a work shop on aquaponics March 17th presenting entrepreneurs in Denmark that have implemented aquaponics pilot units of different scales but all aiming for urban aquaponics. IGFF presented the EcoPonics pilot unit situated at Agrotech´s facilities in Taastrup. The setup is based on a decoupled design and provides opportunities for testing different levels of recirculation between the fish and the plant units. IGFF has tested several plants so far and two fish species, tilapia and pike perch. The fish is doing well.  In some cases the plants are growing well, however some plants, e.g. tomato plants need additional Fe, K and/or Ca for optimum growth. The seminar was very successful gathering young people from high school and university level, researchers and entrepreneurs.
