Abstract

Aquaponics is an innovative, and widely investigated, urban agriculture technology that employs a symbiotic relationship between fish and plants to increase food production. The American Farm School, located in Thessaloniki Greece, is interested in investigating the potential of aquaponics. This project aimed to investigate the possibilities of integrating aquaponics within the school’s educational and research curricula. Utilizing a human centered design type approach, the interests of different stakeholders were examined to guide design criteria for aquaponics systems that met the needs of the American Farm School and Perrotis College.
