Organized by: Robert Zapata
HELLO!! My name is Robert Zapata. I am a 22 year old aviation maintenance student and I have a dream! I want to start up a self-substainable aquaculture company. I know what you might be thinking, "why go to school for aviation maintenance if my dreams are in an opposing direction?" There is always a promising career in avaition! I do enjoy what I am studying but I am also very determined to follow my dreams.
So aquaponics (put shortly) is when you grow plants with water, fish waste, and light. The fish supply the nutrients for the plants and the plant roots filter most of the waste from the water for the fish. The money would be used to buy equipment (tanks, pumps, meters, fish, etc) and rent a location. There will be a main focus on organic and non-GMO produce and fish. The fish will be raised responisbly and will not be over crowded.
Since I come from a low income background I hope to teach and aid those who are in need. I am adimant on helping these people as much as I can while also aiding the ones that I love. Many companies focus solely on profits and they tend to forget about the people in need. With the help of you and my close family and friends who share my dream we can make this happen!
