Murray Hallam is the director of Practical Aquaponics which is based in Australia. Murray is by nature an innovator and in his research & development facility he has perfected many new methodologies for commercial farm aquaponic systems. His gold standard Aquaponics kits are distributed throughout Australia and have also been exported to New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bermuda, and the United States. Feedback from Murray’s large client base has provided valuable development data for his knowledge base about Aquaponics.
Additionally, Murray has delivered Aquaponics training programs across Australia, the United States, India, Morocco, Hungary, Portugal, South Africa, Hong Kong and Puerto Rico. Murray's teaching and consultancy services are much in demand as the Aquaponics industry grows.
Murray has partnered with Ecofilms Australia for 8 years on video projects. Their production with Murray Hallam on his 3 dvds Aquaponics Made Easy, Aquaponics Secrets and Aquaponics DIY has contributed to the growing awareness of Aquaponics and has encouraged people to start growing with his systems all over the world. Ecofilms Australia has also worked on a successful online Permaculture course over the last 3 years and now bring their experience and skills in online course creation to the Aquaponics Design Course as well as producing this series of free videos.
Murray would like to see more people empowered to become key players in localised food production systems, through Aquaponics farms in urban and peri urban spaces. He hopes to fast track this potential by offering these free videos and online traing through his Aquaponics Design Course. He hopes it will contribute to the education of more people, giving them the skills to bring pure, nutrient rich food to their communities and gain meaningful livelihoods.
