AQUAPONICS FARM & SYSTEM:
Brand new, built in 2010. There are 6 large reinforced concrete fish tanks that use fish nitrogen rich water to feed the plants above and at the same time the plants filter and oxygenate the water that is returned to the fish tanks. Tanks are all cement concrete block with rebar, not dirt: 42 feet long x 5 feet wide x 4 feet deep (14 meters long x 1.5 meters deep x 1 meter wide).
This is the largest and only aquaponics building of its kind in Costa Rica, if not all of Central America.
Can also cultivate shrimp, exotic aquarium fish, or even spirulina. Each tank has the capacity to produce between 3000 to 5000 fish (tilapia, shrimp, guapote and also aquarium fish). Currently very well stocked with fish ready to harvest any time.
The system is fully enclosed and you can grow vegetables organically using the nitrogen-rich water from the fish tanks in this amazing closed loop system.
No water is wasted. Continuous crops from fish and plants all year using very little energy.
The aquaponics building features a very large complete industrial grade kitchen with shower facility, bathroom, and large storage room. A very large event hall can be used as the fish and vegetable work area, conference and learning center or even a small restaurant or cafe.
When all 6 tanks are fully functioning and full time producing, the revenues with two annual fish crops alone of 5000 fish per tank (without considering the organic vegetables produced simultaneously) would be around $80,000 US dollars. The system can be fully self-sustained producing the food (duckweed) for the fish and running the pumps on solar power. The fish do not require any antibiotics or other medicines.
EDIBLE FOREST and LANDSCAPE:
Below the mountain and private forest preserve is a mixture of edible forest comprising of 2000 fruit trees and other seasonal crops, all 100% organic, with some large open areas used to grow crops such as 8 types of citrus fruits, 5 types of mango, papaya, dragon fruit, bread fruit, black zapote (aka chocolate mousse fruit), rose apples, cashews, avocado, banana, guava, yucca, chili peppers, aloe vera, watercress, okra, Kerson cherry (cotton candy) fruit, Jamaica/hibiscus, pigeon peas, Mayan spinach, sweet corn, moringa trees are among 60 different types of fruits.
