Peter Preece, Aquaculture Lecturer, TAFE, Port Lincoln Marine Science Centre.

Preece talks of possible future courses in Aquaponics, where aquaculture and hydroponics are combined to provide ecologically sustainable food production units. TAFE would build a small demonstration unit, which would be about the size of a backyard hobby sized set up. Preece is prepared to run an introductory course if there is enough local interest. Describes what the Aquaponics unit would look like. He suggests that in future Aquaponics may be necessary for food production in the face of climate change.

I was told there was going to be a course run inPort Lincoln later this year, got all excited then was told that it would be one day a week for seven or 10 days, no go for me. If one was to run in Aerlaide, I would definately want to be involved.
Daniel, sounds like you know this guy, if you get any info, could you please pm me?

Ta,

Monya

Most of it was useful, i am intending to do land based aquaculture/aquaponics. There was some marine based stuff, which while alot of fun (liferaft drills, driving a big twin engine boat, etc), was not really relavent to what i intend to do.

however i do think Cert three was worth it (on cert 4 now), because out of it as well as a lot of knowledge i also got first aid certificate, forklit licence, etc

It looks like I can skip cert2?, what is cert4, is it the dip?
Did you have to leave your family for any length of time, training interstate, out to sea, etc?
