Good Agricultural Practices for Aquaponics

The Aquaponics Association has developed a set of provisional Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) for aquaponics, a first step in enabling future food safety audits for large aquaponics operations.

Recommendations include:
  • Removing solid fish waste from the system especially when producing leafy greens
  • Preventing system water from touching the edible parts of the plants.
  • Avoid using media beds as a place to mineralize solids
