The Farming Fish’s Aquaponic Tilapia is Available in Portland!

Flying Fish Sustainable Seafood is featuring our fish this week launching Portland availability!
LOCALLY RAISED TILAPIA IS NOW A THING: Long time readers of this always on time weekly fish newsletter have heard us preach the gospel of aquaponics, the incredibly forward thinking sustainable farming method that produces both healthy fish and fresh produce. One of the best is the USDA certified organic farm The Farming Fish near the Rogue River in Southern Oregon. Beginning this past week, we now carry their Tilapia (gorgeous specimen pictured at left), grown in the same aquaponic system that produces basil. Whole fish or fillets, the Tilapia is delicious and it’s our feature product of the week, so take a peek down below for more, then take a crack at this week’s recipe.–Oregon-Tilapia–Cobia–Opah–Dungeness-Crab–Clams.html?soid=1104038856035&aid=UH646WirDno

Here’s a link to Flying Fish Sustainable Seafood full weekly offerings – They are carrying our tilapia and we wanted to let our friends in Portland know where to pick it up!!

Commercial Aquaponic Course – Year Round Growing



Course will be held in Spring 2015 – Check back for date or get added to the update list by emailing:

This course is much more than an introduction to Aquaponics – this premier west coast course will cover it all.  The course will feature both lectures and hands on experience in breakout sessions as well as bench top sessions on the farm.

Not only will you learn about construction and operation of a commercial facility first hand, but you will have access to the worlds leading researchers and innovators in Aquaponics for 4 days!

Take advantage of this opportunity to see world renowned researcher Charlie Shultz join with year round (yes, all four seasons) Aquaponic growers at The Farming Fish for this high level training.  He will lead an in-depth training on Commercial Aquaponics focusing on all aspects of commercial production in a year round growing system.

This course is geared toward commercial, year round production for prospective producers, current producers, farmers, educators, extension agents, students, researchers and policy makers alike in Aquaponics, Aquaculture and Hydroponics.  Many active leaders in the field will converge to share research, applied technologies and market outlooks.

These crowd funding campaigns are all about spreading the word, so we would be very grateful if you would share the video with your network of likeminded folks, and/or on linked-in, facebook, any list serves you’re a member of, shout it from the rooftop :) ; really anything you’d feel good about to get the project out there.

Fun Fact:   Our innovative Aquaponic farm used 1.5 Million gallons less water to grow it’s vegetables than it would have taken otherwise!!!

Our Pledge to you:   For every 3$ pledged toward the goal, a head of organic butter lettuce will be donated throughout this winter.

This means, every person that pledges $10, is supporting an organic farm, is feeding 3 families a local organic salad AND is helping to keep 1.5 Million gallons of water in the Rogue River this year!

Thanks so much for giving it a look and passing it on!
