How to Grow Food
with STEM Food Growing Systems
Are you looking to create a STEM Classroom with Aquaponics?
See what you can grow below.
In contrast to our cheery imagery, we feel compelled to share the importance of learning Aquaponics because if there was ever a time in the modern era to start growing food--it is NOW.
Aquaponics USA is Feeding America, One Family At A Time and Teaching America, One School At A Time with our Aquaponics Family & STEM Food Growing Systems. We have Systems that range from 15 to 80 square feet of Grow Bed space and Fish Tanks from 100 to 320 gallons. Plus we offer everything you need to start on the road to Food Independence with Aquaponics. Go to our AP Products pull down Menu Bar at the top of the page or here's a clickable list of all of our products: Tilapia Fingerlings, Tilapia Fish Food, Automatic Fish Feeders, Heirloom Seeds, Seed Starter Kits, Air and Water Pumps, Measuring Devices, Grow Bed Media, LED Grow Lights, Fluorescent Grow Lights, an Automatic Sprouter, Foodie and Prepper Items and Accessories. We refer to ourselves as your "One STOP SHOP" for Everything Aquaponic.
Any farmer knows there’s a time to plant and a time to harvest. That time is dictated by the seasons. But Aquaponics needs to be a year round operation. It's not like you can stop eating in the winter. So we’re talking about feeding your family and teaching students year round regardless of the season. Unless you live in a season-less, tropical climate, you will need to place your Aquaponics Family or STEM Food Growing System in a protected environment. These systems come close to complete for those lucky enough to live in the tropics. For the rest of us, we have add-ons you will need to create your own tropical paradise including LED, and Fluorescent Grow Lights.

Because we were operating an R&D Aquaponics Lab for many years, we wanted to see how long Tilapia would live in an efficiently run system. Many of our customers are vegetarians and want their fish to be worker fish running the engine of their system. Below in the picture on the left, are Tilapia Fingerlings we purchased in the summer of 2009. They are about three months old in the photo. When we closed down that system in the spring of this year, 2016, many of these same Tilapia were still going strong, huge (some were 30" long and weighed over 5 lbs.). But if you're planning to eat your fish, you don't want to let them get that big. A 1 1/2 lb. Tilapia makes for a delicious meal. The fish in the photo on the left are betweeen 1 and 2 lbs.
The Fish Tank is the Engine!
I love hanging with the FISH.
When you purchase the Family FFGS-20, the add-on's described above are all sold separately.
PARENTS & TEACHERS!
There are several important DVD’s and YouTube Videos out on the Food Movement including Fresh, Food Inc., MEATRIX Part I, MEATRIX Part II, The Future of Food, Food Matters, The World According To Monsanto, End Of The Line and more. Just Google these titles to purchase or watch these important and educational productions about food. There’s a now famous quote by Henry Kissinger that says, “If you control the food supply, you control the people”. Us Americans are all about being Independent, not controlled. It’s time to become FOOD INDEPENDENT!
