Featuring Charlie Shultz
Shultz has been a pioneer in aquaponics since first attempting
to link fish and plants more than 20 years ago. After specializing
in recirculating aquaculture at Virginia Tech in the early 1990s,
he spent 14 years working at the University of the Virgin Islands. While there the team began to host the first aquaponics training course,
incorporating both lecture and hands‐on activities. His master’s
research at Kentucky State University focused on lighting technologies for
indoor plant production using aquaponic systems. Currently, he serves as the lead faculty for controlled environment agriculture at Santa Fe Community College in New Mexico teaching greenhouse management, hydroponics and aquaponics.
