Aquaponics project combines learning, innovation, and community service in Honduras

It offers an affordable and sustainable system that families and communities can use to supplement their diets with fresh, inexpensive fish and vegetables. Andrew Stratton, an undergraduate student in our department spent the 2012-2013 school year building a prototype aquaponics system and planning its implementation in Honduras.
