Get your feet wet with another one of Gene Logsdon's brilliant guides!

Don't shy away from aquaculture for fear that it is too complex and difficult. With a little guidance, this decades-old tradition can be practiced successfully on plots of all sizes. Engage your water ecosystem and take your organic garden or homestead to the next level!

In Getting Food From Water: A Guide to Backyard Aquaculture, Gene Logsdon turns his attention to the practice of small-scale aquaculture, presenting farmers and homesteaders with a long-overdue guide for efficiently and responsibly making use of water ecosystems. There is a lot to be gained from even the smallest of aquaculture practices, from a deeper understanding of the way water interacts with land, to the cultivation of edible fish and aquatic plants. Inside, you'll learn about,

  • Watershed science
  • Mountain streams
  • Warm-water creeks
  • Freshwater wetlands-including bogs, beaver ponds, duck ponds, rivers, lakes, etc.
  • Tidal wetlands where saltwater fish and shellfish can thrive
  • Man-made ponds and how to keep them clean and fertile

Logsdon also includes extensive chapters on raising or cultivating a wide range of fish, waterfowl, water flowers, and algae. If you're ready to unlock the potential of your water systems, Getting Food From Water will show you the way.

Gene Logsdon and his wife Carol have a small-scale experimental farm in Wyandot County, Ohio. Gene is the author of numerous books and magazine articles on farm-related issues, and believes sustainable pastoral farming is the solution for our stressed agricultural system.
