Inner city aquaculture

the aquarancher

Illinois farmer, Myles Harston started the Aquaranch several years ago. It’s an integrated system using the waste-water from his tilapia production system to feed and grow basil and lettuce greens hydroponically.

Now he has helped a South Side Chicago High School set up the same system in their basement. Watch the CNN video HERE.
