Academic aquaponics research
There is also a laboratory at Future Farming’s farm in Kaly. It measures water, air, and plant parameters, analyses their root systems and dissects dead fish. It also provides facilities for university students and other researchers. Here, data collection and evaluation or biological risk assessment and the design of possible countermeasures take place.
We have already collaborated with experts from Mendel University in Brno, the Technical University of Ostrava and the Aquaponics Research Centre in Přáslavice near Olomouc on the design of the Future Farming’s farm in Kaly. We also plan to use the farm to research and develop equipment to reduce energy consumption and operating costs. The goal is to operate an aquaponic farm without the need for fossil fuel sources.
