South River Aquaponics
is an organic sustainable indoor farm and producer of organic fertilizers and an organic cloning gel. We are based out of Montrose, Colorado in a 14,040 square foot greenhouse facility utilizing aquaponics as our main food production system. Aquaponics is a way of combining aquaculture (raising fish in tanks) and hydroponics (growing plants in water) into one symbiotic system. South River Aquaponics raises Barramundi (Asian Sea Bass) in the fish tanks, which are connected, via filtration tanks, to our hydroponic tanks. In these raft tanks we grow fresh lettuces and herbs whose nutrient source comes from the fish! It is a completely organic process! South River Aquaponics has also developed vertical grow towers designed for Garlic, Shallots and Onion production. Each of our 24 vertical grow towers is able to grow roughly 224 plants with Green Onions also growing on the tops of each tower! Our state of the art facility is also home to a 20 foot by 40 foot Mushroom Den where we will focus on Shiitake & Maitake mushrooms as well as other gourmet varieties.
South River Aquaponics Fertilizers: The aquaponics system at South River Aquaponics does create a fish waste
"sludge" (or fish waste concentrate). By separating clean water from "sludge" we can provide our fish a cleaner environment than normally offered in nature. This results in a MUCH cleaner tasting fish in the end! The remaining fish waste sludge is then used as a base by South River Aquaponics to brew the world's first Organic Hydroponic Fertilizer! Along side the fertilizer, we have also created the world's first organic cloning gel, Genesis, which boasts 100% success rates when used in an aeroponic cloner (patent pending) and apart from any other addatives. Asexual plant reproduction is now possible without synthetics!
"OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE FRESH & ORGANIC PRODUCTS WHILE DEVELOPING AN AWARENESS OF THE NEED FOR HEALTHY FOOD PRODUCTION SYSTEMS; BY UTILIZING CURRENT TECHNOLOGY COMBINED WITH ANCIENT TECHNIQUES WE ARE ABLE TO ACHIEVE THIS GOAL ON A MINIMAL CARBON FOOTPRINT."
