Fish in a Barrel

Fish in a Barrel

We’ve all heard of the old analogy “Like Shooting Fish in a Barrel”. But in one VIU (Vancouver Island University) student’s indoor garden, fish in a barrel are a good thing! Julie V., a Fisheries & Aquaculture Technology student at VIU, shows off her small scale Aquaponics system aptly named “Barrelponics”. A completely self reliant nutrient system, Julie’s Aquaponics system grows Nile Tilapia that produce fish emulsion that she then redirects into a reservoir that she then uses to feed her garden as well as produce food to feed the fish!
