How does Aquaculture work?

Normally we think of producing food or biomass with terraculture (growing in earth), but aquaculture (growing in water) can be many times more productive for the same surface area.   Therefore knowing how Aquaculture works is important if we want to create super-productive systems.

In this class we explore the basic principles & various good examples of very productive aquaculture (& multifunctional) in different parts of the world.

Also we explore how we can start very small in order to add mini-aquaculture-systems which are very easy to install & maintain, in our surroundings.
