Sweet Water

Our latest project with Sweet Water Organics in Milwaukee, Wisconsin has involved the design and construction of a large outdoor system to link together five of the seven existing greenhouses via a new fish rearing house.

The greenhouses were previously used seasonally for soil growing,  and for the past year the team have been exploring how to use them to expand their aquaponic capacities to give the most efficient and productive use of land and energy.

We designed a floating raft system with the capacity to produce over 22 tonnes of salad crops and 3 tonnes of fish a year.

Yellow perch were chosen as a high value fish species to cater for the milwaukee “friday fish-fry” market.
