Benefits

Hormone usage

By grading fish 4 times throughout the growth cycle we get to keep the growth rate even and the sexes separate.

Battery storage could not last overnight

Smart pumps lowers power usage at night and use wicking beds that only require irrigation during the day.

Cost and availability of fish feed a hindrance

Use pacu fish and aquatic plants to offset as pacu eat many local fruits and plants act as a buffer for fish to eat back while providing a breeding space

Pest of plants a problem

Mini greenhouse over each grow beds eliminates costly green house infrastructure and pest at the same time

Needs costly site prep and leveling

All piping comes with system and can be used on top of traditional garden no leveling because of unique system can handle a slop of 40 degrees and grow beds can be 40cm clearance from fish tank

High shipping cost

Shipping handling and storage taken into account and designed to be stackable and light weight food safe material

Learning curve

All the scientific processes are laid out in a way to learn them easily and that they handle each other

Time consuming

Automation of most of the physical labour is done to increase the value of time spent

Water quality parameters
