Ashley Berrysmith announces Aquaponic Ventures Ltd Trial


Aquaponic Ventures Limited (AVL) has been endorsed by Ashley Berrysmith to take up a strong leadership role in the Aquaponics industry by commissioning the development of a commercial pilot unit in Motueka, South Island.

Aquaponics is defined as a combination of hydroponics (growing plants in water) and aquaculture (growing fish in tanks) and is described by Ashley Berrysmith as "the step beyond organics".  A New Zealand first, the aim of the Aquaponics pilot is to scientifically trial a scalable, sustainable model for commercially growing food crops in a closed eco-system.

The Berrysmith Foundation will follow the progress of the trial with interest.
