About Us
Vancouver Islands pioneering aquaponics greenhouse!

Aquaponic farming is a hybrid production technique that combines aquaculture and hydroponics.

At Raincoast, rainbow trout are grown in culture tanks which are connected to a hydroponic growing system.

The waste water leaving the fish tanks is circulated through the hydroponic system, where a variety of bacteria work on neutralizing the fish wastes by converting them into minerals and plant nutrients.

The plants in the hydroponic system then absorb the nutrients, effectively cleaning the water, which is then recycled back into the fish tanks.
Practices
We practice organic principles! In addition to this, we do not use any fertilizers to feed the vegetables (the fish do it for us!), and we choose not to use even OMRI listed botanical insecticides.
Pests are controlled using beneficial bacteria, predatory insects, and diatomaceous earth.
