Aquaponics Books

Dr. Wilson Lennard has just released a groundbreaking book on commercial aquaponics: "Commercial Aquaponic Systems: Integrating recirculating fish culture with hydroponic plant production." This 400-page book is the most comprehensive, science-based work in the field of aquaponics to date. It can be purchased at: https://www.aquaponic.com.au

Dr. Rakocy is writing the "UVI Aquaponic System." This book describes the major findings during 30 years of research and development that led to the current commercial-scale UVI system that is in wide use today. In addition to covering general principles of aquaponics, the book details the UVI system design, construction techniques and management of fish production, plant production and water quality. The book also addresses the layout and construction of large commercial aquaponic facilities and the ancillary systems required to support the production systems.

The authors, Dr. James Rakocy and Dr. Wilson Lennard, have more than 57 years of combined experience in the field of aquaponics and have six degrees in science between them. The authors have decades of practical, hands-on experience in constructing and operating aquaponic systems and marketing aquaponic products. They also have considerable experience teaching aquaponics. They have taught aquaponics to well over 1,000 students from more than 70 countries, students ranging from backyard gardeners with no scientific background to university researchers with PhD degrees.
