Kate Wildrick says,

I am so excited to see that Murray Hallam has made his plans available by Kindle. I absolutely love this book!! The easy to understand step-by-step instructions have helped us build our own abundant aquaponic system. After spending several months doing research on what type of systems and plans would work best, we decided Murray Hallam had put together the most thoughtful and practical approach. He has a great way of explaining what you need to know every step of the way. Plus, the easy to understand diagrams and pictures provide a rich visual source of information. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is curious or serious about aquaponics. It is an excellent and super affordable resource that is guaranteed to save you a lot of time and costly mistakes.
