View Full Version : Students Looking for Help With Aquaponics Business Idea

02-05-2014, 01:38 PM

My name is Thomas and I am a student at Washington State University. We are attempting to develop a automated system to aid the testing of waterflow, pH, and nutrient flow in an aquaponic system connected with a fish tank. We are just starting to develop our business plan and we could get some answers to questions regarding the viability of our product in a commercial setting. Here is a few questions we are asking:

-How much time would you estimate you spend monitoring/maintaining your aquaponics system vitals?

-Do you see a use for this product? If so, what would you be willing to pay for it?

-Are there other sensors we should include? (in other words, are there other measurements you make which we have not accounted for?)

-What size is your aquaponics system?

-What is the biggest hassle you face in setting up or running you aquaponics system?

Thanks for your help! :)
