Hey all you aquaponic farmers and gardeners out there – great news – we are making an impact on sustainable agriculture (well we always knew that of course- but now others are starting to notice too!) Johns Hopkins University and others created a special survey to collect information on aquaponic enthusiasts. This is a great opportunity for us to raise awareness in the U.S. (and beyond) about how and why we use aquaponics to grown fruits, herbs, vegetables, flowers, fish and more! Take the survey here!

Researchers from three schools– Johns Hopkins University, University of Maryland and West Virginia University – are combining forces to conduct the largest survey of the aquaponics field. The survey will collect critical information about production methods and community engagement among aquaponics hobbyists, educators, farmers and companies. The responses will help contribute to a better understanding of this rapidly growing field.
This confidential online survey takes about 15 minutes to complete, and survey respondents can enter a lottery to win one of four $75 Amazon gift certificates. The research team is encouraging individuals to take the survey and share it with others in the aquaponics community.
