The mission of the Aquaponics Association is to promote the benefits of aquaponics through education and outreach.
This primary goals and/or vision of this association are as follows
- To promote the benefits of aquaponic growing
- To educate the general consumer and food safety officials about the inherent safety of aquaponically grown food
- To dispel myths and rumors about aquaponically grown food
The vision for this organization is that it will also create educational materials, facilitate an aquaponic speaker’s bureau and act as a resource or liaison to the press. Eventually it could also possibly offer legal and insurance assistance and standards and certification for our rapidly growing commercial aquaponic industry. However, in light of very recent and very real scares regarding e-coli and food safety, we recognize that the first and foremost agenda for this young association is educating others about the safety of aquaponically grown food.
