CBS2 Chicago - "your chicago" segment - aquaponics with fish
This aired on my local CBS news- they have a weekly segment "your chicago" which looks at different happenings around town. This was about charter school students learning about aquaponics with fish. They are learning about water testing, the nitrogen cycle, nitrates for feeding plants, etc and are using tilapia as their fish of choice. Love the young man whose favorite part of the program is water testing!
I apologize for the bad quality of the video, but I recorded it from the tv with my phone. Be sure to turn up your sound. Great to see young people learning to appreciate nature and the natural way of doing things.
