We design profitable commercial aquaponic greenhouse farms for year-round organic food production.

First lettuce harvest 2005 at ML Aquaponics’ commercial R&D facility in Quebec (Canada). As of October 2016, the facility had produced 3.8 million heads of lettuce.

The Model-7 is a profitable, state-of-the-art aquaponic facility that produces organic food year-round, using environmentally sound practices. Its design is closely based on a similar model that operated commercially for over 12 years in Quebec. The Model-7 can be built on small to medium-sized lots and provides two full-time jobs and several part-time positions. The design focuses on fish well-being and low maintenance and operating costs while producing premium vegetables and smoked fish fillets on a weekly basis. The facility consists of a 294’ x 42’ Ovaltech™ greenhouse made by Harnois, a 31’ x 42’ service building, and a 14’ x 20’ shipping and receiving area. It takes advantage of Harnois’ smaller-sized greenhouses while considering the importance of economies of scale. This compact model design maximizes space usage but does not overcrowd work zones. The Model-7includes a high-tech 10.6- metric ton Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS). The service building has a staff kitchen, toilet, office and cold room and is also equipped with a slaughter room, a filleting room and a smoking room for complete onsite fish processing capabilities.
