Was walking to work this afternoon and this guy caught my eye. Scientist, Dr. Philson of Cornell University, casually taking a break outside his lab. I emailed him his picture with a comment that I thought meeting people on the street was interesting and asked him what kind of science he worked in. This is what he replied:
Yes, my labs, Cornell University Aquaculture, Hydroponics, Aquaponics Labs are located at 525 West 50th Street, New York, NY (between 10th and 11th Avenues).
I have also invented and developed some of the new technologies in the above stated areas.
Aquaculture: Is the culturing or growing of food fish for human consumption and or the culturing of ornamental fish for the aesthetics in a continually biologically and ecologically controlled re-circulating and reconditioning water environment.
Hydroponics: Is the growing or cultivation of plants such as vegetables and herbs in a re-circulating nutrient rich solution or liquid environment (without soil).
Aquaponics: Is the integration of both the NDFT Hydroponics and BHS Aquaculture Technologies (or Systems) in an ecologically driven and balanced symbiotic and sustainable controlled environment resulting in two products, a food fish product and a plant (vegetables and herbs) product. The nutrient rich water from the fish environment sustains the vegetables and herbs crops, while the plants clean the water from the fish environment biologically.
