2006 Annual Report for FW05-312
Maximizing Production Efficiency in a Three-Stage Integrated Agriculture System Using Taro, Tilapia, Aquatic Plants and Fancy Guppies
This project is seeking a 9 month no-cost extension. This is a progress report. Project was delayed because all equipment and supplies had to be sourced and shipped in from outside sources. The system design was finalized and all equipment and supplies were ordered from Sino-Aqua Company in Taiwan. The shipment was received in December 2006. The project site has been identified and been prepped for the delivery of equipment and supplies and installation of the system.
To provide a system to produce food and fiber in the form of fish and taro leaves as well as additional income from ornamental fish and aquatic plants. The system is expected to annually produce 1200-1600 pounds of tilapia and an undetermined amount of taro leaves, approximately 2,000 ornamental fish and 1000 bunches of ornamental aquatic plants.
