“There are a lot of people that classify themselves as “experts” in aquaponics. In the past couple of years and I have had to listen to most of them. 


Dr. Nate Storey is as proclaimed “an expert” in his design of this emerging technology. I have listened to every video and talk that Bright Agrotech has put up. Some several times. And I will continue to follow their progress.
