URGENT SALE REDUCED PRICE - EQUIPMENT ONLY!

This Aquaponics operation currently supplies fresh leafy produce such as lettuce, kale, herbs, spring onions, chives together with freshwater fish all year around. Chef's love the freshness and health benefits of produce which is free of artificial fertilizers and fungicides. According to the Chef's you get a better taste and the vegetables are crispier. A plant usually takes six weeks to grow from seedling into a marketable plant and the fish will grow from fingerlings to plate size in approx 12 months.
Fresh vegetables and fish can often be hard to find in rural towns. The hot house operation includes 2,300 pots for growing vegies and 600 Murray cod. The Murray Cod's waste serves as fertilizer for the vegies, which in turn clean the water for the Cod
This is surely one of the most cost efficient ways of growing food, not to mention that you require far less space than traditional growing methods. And from a health and safety point of view, there is also no back bending work during harvest as plants are grown at waist height .
