Researching the Economics and Sustainability of Aquaponic Systems

The FORAM Sustainable Aquaponics Research Center (SARC) is a joint venture between Georgia Southern University and the FORAM Foundation. Our aquaponics system is located in an ~ 4,100 square foot greenhouse that supports student and faculty research in areas of biology, chemistry, economics and engineering.
