I have checked your web site at http://www.dabney.com/ecogenics/ and would like to know:
(a) the fish yields per sq.ft (or m2)
(b) what is the source of water for the fish (tap water, or wastewater, etc ?)
(c) do you use supplementary fish feed

Do organic rules allow hydroponics (which I understand to mean growing
plants without soil, on an artificial medium like water to which
minerals and nutrients are added by the grower?
I can't imagine how this can be organic, when such plants (or fish)
will clearly be deprived of many micronutrients they get from the soil
which scientists might not even have discovered yet.
