Aquaponics is very modular. By that, we mean we build a cluster of fishtanks, filtration systems, and various types of grow beds to act as one independent unit.
There may be 6 of these units that make up the totality of the farm.
By reiterating or duplicating these units, we can grow and service any part of the farm without shutting down the whole farm's output.
There may also be six fish tanks in each unit. All are independent of one another so any tank can be shut down for maintenance whilst the other tanks continue to operate and function as normal.
This farm in Oman is built around the same concept. We break down how this farm operates in The Aquaponics Design Course.
