    Soil is not need for an aquaponics system. The N-cycle forms a closed loop between a plant crop and a fish crop, I think they mentioned using tilapia. Since several different farming techniques will be implemented, I imagine that soil will be used for some crops.

    Does a problem arise when attempting to manage the different climates needed to grow non-native crops? I am guessing that some sort of bio-dome would be structured in order to prevent the spread of invasive species.

    I am impressed by this system. The structure for supplying food in the U.S. has created a very selfish and wasteful perception. We would benefit from this sort of system greatly. Maybe I should move to the Netherlands.
