Hopefully, this aquaponics project will be the beginning of an entire community renewal. The long-term benefits of this project can include the creation of more jobs, improvement in community relations, community empowerment, heightened economic status, environmental restoration and enhancement of the quality of life in our neighborhood.
NAAC’s aquaponics project goal is to raise an undetermined amount of fish based on the research and availability of the facility and produce several hundred pounds of organic produce all within a greenhouse. The fish and produce are expected to be sold at local farmers markets and through area fish markets. Surplus output will be donated to local emergency food providers.
