This interesting and ambitious project in Kansas City is modeled on the latest design of Will Allen at Growing Power in Milwaukee. When I visited and met with Will Allen in 2013, he was hardly growing anything with Aquaponics besides watercress.
If this system can succeed growing black soldier fly larvae (protein to feed fish) most of the year, it could be a big success and step forward in commercial AP design. Fish feed protein is a major input for Aquaponics systems.
