Backyard Aquaponics was started by Joel Malcolm in Australia after he stumbled across the idea over ten years ago. Being such a simple concept, he wondered why more people weren't doing it. Joel wrote the first book about Aquaponics and started the Backyard Aquaponics forum http://www.backyardaquaponics.com/forum/ where con-tributors from around the globe began sharing their knowledge and inspiring others. Realizing there was a demand, the world's first retail display centre was opened in 2007 with over a dozen different systems on display. He began installing kit systems for clients, providing monthly workshops and providing consultations on system design and maintenance. Backyard Aquaponics also produces a quarterly magazine, which features systems from all over the world, methods of pest control, recipes, fish keeping and research trials, available in either electronic format or printed glossy editions.
