MONTELLO, Wis. — No cows, no cropland, but there’s plenty of protein and nutritious leafy greens. That’s what aquaponics offers.

A cutting-edge hybridization of aquaculture and hydroponics, aquaponics combines indoor rearing of fish with soil-less plant production. At the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point it’s called a transformational, global-agriculture business practice that ranges from home-food production to large-scale commercial food-fish farming.

Wisconsin is leading the way in a “Blue Revolution” with the Aquaponics Innovation Center — a partnership between the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and Nelson and Pade Inc.®, a designer and provider of aquaponics systems worldwide.

The Aquaponics Innovation Center at Montello opened April 2015 at Nelson and Pade’s headquarters.
