With low set-up costs and small space requirements, aquaponics offers a multitude of economic opportunities for small and first-time farmers, as well as schools and government institutions. In Jamaica, INMED aquaponics is attracting youth to farming with low-interest loan programs, intensive training and a growing track record of success. INMED’s aquaponic systems have produced crop yields at least 10 times higher than equivalently sized plots traditionally cultivated, while consuming a fraction of the water and energy.
