Aquaponics in Minnesota

The third annual symposium on aquaponics in Minnesota will bring together a diverse audience to discuss topics in aquaponics.

The first-ever symposium on aquaponics in Minnesota was held on May 5, 2015. It brought together a diverse audience of more than 100 people to discuss recent research in food safety and good agriculture practices as they apply to our local industry. In addition, two panel discussions provided an opportunity for Q&A with some of the state’s technical experts and industry leaders. The second symposium on aquaponics was held on May 3, 2016.
