Urbanspace Aquaponics was born from the idea that food should be grown locally, within our city limits using the most sustainable yet technologically innovative ways. Everything we do at Urbanspace is driven by this simple idea. Our vision is to be a part of the movement that seeks to bring food back to our communities where wholesome, fresh food is locally available. We built one of largest aquaponics farm in BC with over 2,000 sqft of growing space producing over 3000 vegetables a week.
Introducing our brand new e-book Fundamentals of Aquaponics to our Aquaponics School section. This guide book is a consolidated source of the fundamental pillars of aquaponics: science, water quality, fish, plants and environmental conditions. The material is put together specifically with the intention to give you the information you need for the "How-To's" of your next aquaponics project including a Design Case Study for a small scale aquaponics system that takes you step-by-step through the process of designing your very own aquaponics farm. Visit our Guide Book Page to Get the Limtited Time Introductory Offer.
The Aquaponics Design Calculator Tools that allow you to automatically calculate all the parameters needed to design your aquaponics system. This unique tool will calculate critical design parameters such as the amount of water needed for the fish, the ideal size of the fish tanks, number of fish tanks needed, number of fish needed given a ceratin grow area, weight of fish based on feed ratios, feed per day to keep your system at peak and much more for both backyard/hobby scale and small commercial scale aquaponics system. Take the guess work out of your aquaponics design project. Visit the Design Calcualtors page to learn more
