COMMERCIAL AQUAPONICS FARMING

LA PIEUS AQUA ARE CONTINUOUSLY WORKING ON IMPROVING OUR STANDARDS AND SUPPORTING FRAMEWORK BY ASSOCIATING WITH SCIENTISTS, NGOS, AQUACULTURE PRODUCERS, TRAINING INSTITUTIONS, RETAIL AND FOODSERVICE COMPANIES AND CONSUMERS TO RECOGNIZE AND STRIVE TOWARDS OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE IN ESTABLISHING RESPONSIBLE AQUAPONIC SYSTEMS, PROCESSES, AND PROJECTS.

The world’s population is growing at an incredible rate, and with it, the demand for fish protein is quickly surpassing sustainable natural fish production.
My  team and I at La Pieus Aqua is a highly qualified group of professionals that approach aquaponics with innovative and adaptable designs, consistent project management protocols, the highest level of customer integration. We offer both complete aquaponic system packages, and consulting services that rival the best in the industry.
At La Pieus Aqua we take pride in designing and developing aquaponic solutions for our clients and partners. Our systems are modeled on the concept of environmental responsibility through simplicity in design and ease of use. Regardless of its scope or size, every project benefits from our dedication and due diligence.
Considering every design to be unique, generally, our designs adapt to local conditions, use locally-available materials, and respect local customs and traditions. We engage local business and local suppliers to facilitate the successful completion of projects and use our own materials if and when possible. We believe this is key to our successful model, as it not only supports local businesses but also facilitates the ease of maintenance and repairs and feed the need of food locally first.
