High Hopes Quickly Dashed 18 mai 2013
Par Alfred Medow - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
At the outset, I want to acknowledge that this review looks like an outlier given that several people have rated this is a five star book. I am at a loss to explain these reviews except for the possibility that these folks have just begun their aquaponic journeys and simply do not know what they do not know.

I had been looking forward to getting this book ever since I read that it was coming out and I finally got my copy. I have already done a fair bit of reading on aquaponics but I am the sort that wants to make sure I know all that I can before I start a new project. So, it is with this idea that I began reading this book.

I am sorry to report that I stopped my detailed reading after the third chapter because I just found too many things in the book that contradict what I am now certain are true. For example, on page 9 the author states that you cannot grow cool weather plants and tilapia together. This is certainly false. In fact, Dr. James Rakocy spent most of his thirty year career at the University of the Virgin Islands developing aquaponics using lettuce and tilapia.

Beyond errors, I did not expect to discover that I already know more than what the book offers on key subjects. For example, on page 11 the author covers sump tanks, but does not explain that their primary function is to expand the water capacity in an aquaponics system so that you can go beyond a one to one ratio of fish tank to grow bed volume. In fact, in the first three chapters she seems to be assuming that all systems are restricted to a one to one ratio. This is a big surprise to anyone using the very common CHiFT PiST or CHOP designs that expand all the way up to a three to one ratio. I rapidly read through the short (22 page) Chapter 4 - Fish Tanks, Grow Beds, and Plumbing - and verified that the book entirely avoids any discussion of system types!

So I decided to give the book one last chance by flipping to chapter 24 at the end titled "Do It Yourself Systems". If these plans were any good the book would pay for itself. Again I was hugely disappointed. There are two sets of instructions for building extremely basic small systems and, astoundingly, there are ZERO illustrations or images with them! Let me repeat. The entire DIY chapter has no illustrations or images!

This led me to review the author chosen to extend the Complete Idiot's Guide series to cover aquaponics. I was a bit surprised at what seems to me to be quite modest credentials for someone writing a book such as this. As best I could tell, she has volunteered to present topics at a couple of small conferences and to volunteer for a new aquaponics association. Maybe there is more, but if so, it is not noted in the book and it does not show in the book's content.

In my opinion, there are much better choices for a comprehensive book on home aquaponics. The best of them is Aquaponic Gardening by Sylvia Bernstein.

A "Survivalists's" Dream-- One Book to Cover it All... 5 avril 2013
Par Let's Compare Options Preptorial - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Aquaponics is the hottest topic today in survivalist circles, and this book is the best of the best. I've built several systems from scratch, and previous to this gem, it took three other books plus a video to get all the pieces that are included here. Those steps include:

1. Building the framework system, including possibly indoors (this book is one of the few that extensively covers indoor water and lighting).
2. Cost saving alternatives so the entire system is under $200.
3. Picking the right fish/vegetable combination.
4. Figuring out how to prime and recycle (which most of the books either don't cover or cover too little, which can destroy your system).
5. Longer term maintenance, reseeding and multiple harvests.

A lot of the online hype about feeding a family of four full time with a small 10 foot square (even high vertical) system is, well, hype! The combination of hydroponics and fish farming and the claims that this is better than both is NOT hype-- the sybiosis involved does make these types of systems much easier and more efficient. I taught a class in this at a local college, and the campus built several demo systems that are still, 5 years later, producing extensive harvests year round.

Most of the online buzz on this is about surviving food shortages, but some also say that you can grow food in these for far less than you can buy it at the supermarket. That is just a plain lie! IF food prices really do go through the roof, or per pack quantities do continue to shrink, this might be borderline true, but to be very honest, these really are a lot of work and do produce $2 tomatoes when you look at all your costs, especially if you go with indoor heating and lighting. On the other hand, you CAN control quality and quantity in ways you can't by shopping!

Highly recommend this comprehensive book. A few of the other top picks are:

-- Aquaponic Gardening: A Step-By-Step Guide to Raising Vegetables and Fish Together
-- Building An Aquaponics System (The Backyard Prepper Series) (Volume 1)
-- Aquaponic Food Product - Raising fish and plants for food and profit

What about the "kit" systems vs. using your own components? That depends on how close you are to a Home Depot or Lowes! I don't recommend scrounging the yard for materials, but if you're close to a big box store, you can get the components, well detailed in this book, for far less than buying one of the commercial kits.

Library Picks reviews only for the benefit of Amazon shoppers and has nothing to do with Amazon, the authors, manufacturers or publishers of the items we review. We always buy the items we review for the sake of objectivity, and although we search for gems, are not shy about trashing an item if it's a waste of time or money for Amazon shoppers. If the reviewer identifies herself, her job or her field, it is only as a point of reference to help you gauge the background and any biases.

A User Friendly Step-By-Step Guide 5 avril 2013
Par Bill Gallagher - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
In this book, Meg Stout provides an accessible step-by-step guide for those new to aquaponics. If you are just starting out or mildly interested in the subject, this book will help you understand the how-to basics of aquaculture and the science behind why these techniques work. For example, Stout explains everything you should take into account for each step of the way (lighting, tanks, location, indoor/outdoor, etc.).

For a beginner's guide, this book provides the reader with an abundance of options. This guide is also particularly helpful in helping you determine what you should plant and how to plant it, along with the pros and cons of different techniques, plants, tanks, and settings. Unlike other beginner guides, Stout stresses the importance of long-term maintenance, and she explains techniques of how to elicit seeds for the next harvest, safely control different types of pests, use fish waste as fertilizer, and extend growing the season. Stout does not assume that all growers are alike and thus provides a wide variety of options to meet any new grower's needs. For instance, she addresses a variety of untypical situations, such as what growers should do when public electricity and water are unavailable.

Below are the chapter topics (I wrote this up before seeing it is available by clicking the cover photo). I hope you find it helpful:

Please note: if you are interested in going into more depth with Acquaculture, I recently received a copy of Freshwater Aquaculture: A Handbook for Small Scale Fish Culture in North America for review. The book is a reprint from the 1990s, so there are parts that are a bit dated if you want to be cutting edge, but it is extremely well illustrated and diagrammed,accessible to those new to aquaculture, and was long the definitive book on the topic.

A picture's worth a thousand words 5 janvier 2014
Par Warren - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book does a fine job of covering the basics. The author gives detailed DIY instructions and will tell you what to buy and how long to cut it. However, there are no illustrations or pictures to go with the DIY instructions so its difficult to get the big picture of what exactly she is telling you how to make. It's just annoying.

why use a picture when a 1000 words will do 12 juin 2013

the only reason I understand half of the book is I already have a 60 cu m aquaponic system. Not recommended for a beginer. Jamie Brown, DIY Aquaponics is easier to understand, practical and hits the basics. Its fun to read too.
