Anekona takes it’s next step forward

While it may seem odd to have an small commerical aquaponics facility on a site devoted to a story set in a desert, that’s just the way it is. In fact, aquaponics might be one possible solution for the water shortage in the deserts of the American Southwest. It uses less than 10% of the water that traditional dirt farming requires. The water is pumped back into the fish tanks after running through the troughs growing the vegetables.

The infrastructure for Anekona Aquaponics was constructed based mostly on plans drawn by Tim Mann at Friendly Aquaponics in Honakaa, Big Island. Walter and Bryson Wildco Construction built these structures

Larry Yonashiro of Aquaponics No Ka Oi in Kahului, Maui, my mentor, also learned at Friendly, so we are part of the Friendly Tree.

Ron Ganga is now the managing partner for Anekona and are going to take this to the next level.
Ron has an Associates degree from Maui College and wrote his thesis on aquaponics. Exciting times!
