Tour visit, International Aquaponics Congress (2008)
2008 HISTORY FIRST CONGRESS
Carlos Leon, John Pade, Rebecca Nelson, Dr. James Rakocy, Dr. Nick Savidov, Dr. Mike Nichols, Dr. Wilson Lennard
12 years since we started the First Aquaponics Congress in the world, and up to now, it has grown integrating many more actors and stakeholders in the sector, who together share our ideas and experiences to achieve innovations in our regions.
In 2008, the first International Aquaponics Congress was held in the City of Guadalajara, Mexico, a country where aquaponics has developed for hundreds of years in pre-Hispanic times. Nowadays, roots are reborn and new projects and people are sprouting up who seek for this activity to grow, develop and penetrate in different scales and sectors, with the intention of creating a productive harmony with nature. That moment that began more than 12 years ago is now bearing fruit. From having a stage of less than 10 presenters, it has to be more than 100 today. To have been able to show the first farm in Latin America at that time, and to know less than 5 operating in the world, now with more than a thousand systems operating at different scales.
There is no doubt that the level and participation is increasing. Now with technology people integrate more easily and quickly, so this year, the involvement of all continents will be more enriching. Thus comes this modality of the online congress, in the midst of a global crisis, there is no other option than to look for sustainable, comprehensive and safe alternatives. Let's all go for... The Future of Sustainable Food !!!

It is a mix between aquaculture and hydroponics. The idea is very simple, fish are raised in a pond and the water from the pond is used to feed a hydroponic irrigation system. The result is clean water for the fish and fertilizer for the plants.
Aquaponics uses the waste generated by the fish to nourish the plants which in turn release the water of these compounds making it available again to the fish.
