UNB Business Students Create Aquaponics System

Two university students are hoping to soon see their business plan for an aquaponics farm in Fredericton come to fruition. 

Jake Wildman-Sisk of U-N-B says he and his partner Kristen Olsen haven't secured an investment yet but they've received several offers for their idea, which would produce fresh veggies and farm fish at the same time.

He tells CHSJ News he's surprised more people are using aquaponics systems, which is self-sustaining and environmentally friendly, but they're hoping once they implement their plan in the city, the idea will start to take off.

He says they will have to make some decisions but they are very excited about the opportunities and options they do have and to see what the summer brings.
