The mission of the Aquaponics Association is to promote the benefits of aquaponics through education and outreach.
This primary goals and/or vision of this association are as follows
To promote the benefits of aquaponic growing
To educate the general consumer and food safety officials about the inherent safety of aquaponically grown food
To dispel myths and rumors about aquaponically grown food
The vision for this organization is that it will also create educational materials, facilitate an aquaponic speaker’s bureau and act as a resource or liaison to the press. Eventually it could also possibly offer legal and insurance assistance and standards and certification for our rapidly growing commercial aquaponic industry. However, in light of very recent and very real scares regarding e-coli and food safety, we recognize that the first and foremost agenda for this young association is educating others about the safety of aquaponically grown food.
It is simple -- Help people grow closer to the food they eat, and grow the food closer to the people who eat it.
We believe in a higher standard of produce. Our growing methods are cleaner, faster, and more water efficient than conventional agriculture. Soil-borne pests and diseases are non-existent. Warm-blooded pathogens such as E. coli and Salmonella are not found in fish or fish waste, and thus their threat is minimized. Aquaponic growing generates more food per square foot, and does NOT use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.
We want to feed, educate, and most importantly motivate.
