Perma-culture VS Aqua-phonics


Perma-culture VS Aqua-phonics
To feed my family is important to me and i have research many ways to do this.

I was looking at installing an aquaphonics system, as these can be hidden in plane site, and was considering a flotation method may be the easiest and least expensive (float the plants on the surface in styrene) but then the pond has to be really big and the plants have to have really small root systems.

After I did some research i discovered Perma-Culture and maybe its a good ideas to do permi-culture instead of aqua-phonics — they yield is lower but its way lower profile, requires less to setup and is lower tech so the natural balance is maintained, you also don’t have to worry about pumps, tanks etc.
the trade off is the lack of fish protein that would be a nice addition to the table.

Well i bought the book from this site and am working through it – maybe perma-culture is the way to go?
will let you all know how it goes.
