Presentation - Graeme Smith – Graeme Smith Consulting.

Challenge​The integration of aquaculture and hydroponics, converting waste streams into a revenue via 'aquaponics'; is seeing high-value crops produced on the same footprint with the same water and negligible environmental impact but how to do it?
