This open access book, written by world experts in aquaponics and related technologies, provides the authoritative and comprehensive overview of the key aquaculture and hydroponic and other integrated systems, socio-economic and environmental aspects. Aquaponic systems, which combine aquaculture and vegetable food production offer alternative technology solutions for a world that is increasingly under stress through population growth, urbanisation, water shortages, land and soil degradation, environmental pollution, world hunger and climate change.
About the Author
Simon Goddek - Simon is an expert in the field of multi-loop aquaponics systems and an ecopreneur. In 2014, Simon started his PhD in the faculty of environmental engineering at the University of Iceland, completing it in the group Biobased Chemistry & Technology at Wageningen University (The Netherlands). At the time of publication, he is a postdoc in the same group, where he is involved in several projects in Europe (i.e. CITYFOOD) and Africa (e.g. desertfoods Namibia). His research focus in aquaponics includes numerical system simulation and modeling, decoupled multi-loop aquaponics systems, and anaerobic mineralization solutions. Alyssa Joyce - Alyssa is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Marine Sciences (aquaculture) at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. In her group, several researchers are focused on the role of bacterial relationships in nutrient bioavailability and pathogen control in aquaponics systems. She was one of the Swedish representatives to the EU COST Network on aquaponics, and is a partner in the CITYFOOD project developing aquaponics technology in urban environments. Benz Kotzen - Benz is an Associate Professor and Head of Research and Enterprise in the School of Design, University of Greenwich, London and a consultant landscape architect. He runs the rooftop Aquaponics Lab at the University. He developed and was Chair of the EU Aquaponics Hub, whose remit was to raise the state of the art of aquaponics in the EU and facilitate collaborative aquaponics research. Urban agriculture including vertical aquaponic systems and growing exotic vegetables aquaponically and drylands restoration are key fields of research. Gavin Burnell - Gavin is an Emeritus Professor at the Aquaculture and Fisheries Development Centre, University College Cork, Ireland and President of the European Aquaculture Society (2018 - 2020). He has been researching and promoting the concept of marine aquaponics as a contribution to the circular economy and sees an important role for this technology in outreach to urban communities. As a co-founder of AquaTT and Editor of Aquaculture International he is excited at the possibilities that aquaponics has in research, education and training across disciplines.
