    Quite a bit of information beyond my skills, abilities, and the amount I m willing to spend.

    This book certainly is extensive albeit not exhaustive , covering many topics dealing with aquaponics, both directly and indirectly I was a little disappointed with the lack of specific, quantitative discussion regarding the aquaponic nitrogen cycle i.e how much ammonia fish will produce, how much nitrate plants will uptake from the water supply These amounts probably vary with species, maturity, and other factors but, given how much detail was given on other topics, it would have been nic This book certainly is extensive albeit not exhaustive , covering many topics dealing with aquaponics, both directly and indirectly I was a little disappointed with the lack of specific, quantitative discussion regarding the aquaponic nitrogen cycle i.e how much ammonia fish will produce, how much nitrate plants will uptake from the water supply These amounts probably vary with species, maturity, and other factors but, given how much detail was given on other topics, it would have been nice to have at least broached this one The other big drawback for this book was the fact that there were no diagrams accompanying the DIY instructions at the end of each chapter There were only a handful of pictures, and the majority of those were of fish and plants rather than parts and systems.This book did do some things very well As mentioned above, it is very extensive and covers the what, how, and why of aquaponics, as well as basic plant maintenance, organic pest control, augmenting the growing season, and other topics I m half surprised that the author didn t include a chapter of on food preservation I particularly liked one of the final chapters, which covered integrated aquaponic systems It outlined several ways that aquaponics can be incorporated into a variety of lifestyles, from a rural African village to a retirement community

    This is a very cursory look at aquaponics Not comprehensive in any dimension Folks in the know will find little value here Aqua what ics newbie types may find this whets their appetite, but isn t a stand alone or ongoing reference material You re gonna want to read something else after or instead.

    Everything you wanted to know about growing plants without dirt and creating that circle of life process with your fish in the aquarium I just wanted to create a small set up in the kitchen window counter area, but even the simplest set up may be too extensive for my space.
