Stephen Raisner is a leading aquaponic consultant and founder of Potent Ponics. He has helped pioneer many of the methods now use for high value and hard to grow crops in aquaponics and has worked on projects around the world including Canada, Jamaica, Zimbabwe, South Africa, and across the US.
During his time working with aquaponics he developed a method now known as dual root zone planting which allows for a much wider range of crops to grow via aquaponics than was previously possible with traditional methods of production.
Steve is also the host of the Growing With Fishes Podcast which is on its 6th year with over 700 hours of educational content for your garden be is soil or aquaponics.
