Morning Star Fishermen: Educating the World on Aquaponics and Sustainability

Aquaponics is combining aquaculture with hydroponics. At the MSF North American Headquarters, MSF instructors are educating individuals from around the world so that they may teach others how to live more sustainably.

Orlando, FL, September 26, 2011 --( MSF was founded in 1990 by Hans Geissler, and currently has training facilities in North America, Central America, Haiti, and Africa. The North American facility serves as a base of operation which is located in Dade City, just out side of Orlando, Florida. MSF promotes learning sustainability through aquaponics. To accomplish this, they provide training and education about systems that range from feeding small households in the U.S. to large villages in a third-world countries.

MSF has joined efforts with their new Executive Director, Phil Reasons. He believes in the mission statement of MSF and what it stands for, "Give a man a fish and he eats for one day, teach a man to raise fish and grow vegetables, and the whole community eats for a lifetime."

Aquaponics is, "The symbiotic relationship between aquaculture and hydroponics. Aquaculture is raising fish, hydroponics is growing vegetables in water, without soil. We teach people globally how to utilize this technology to live sustainably. We are a 501(C)3 non-profit organization operating in a race against world hunger," says MSF executive director, Phil Reasons.
