Our first venture into agriculture is with United Aquafarm Ventures, Inc. The company started out as a private business entity back in 2012 in aquaculture business – managing their fish cages in Laguna de Bay. Fish-farming being a huge business potential, the owners decided to offer the same opportunity to other investors and eventually, they came up with the “AquaNegosyo Program” which they have opened up further to the public, which now, includes us.

Also, the coupon for a 99 cent fish from Petco was a big plus considering that many of us waited a while for our AquaFarms to arrive. Back to the Roots started this project through crowdfunding which often has delays and they were very good at communicating with me about why it was taking so long (design improvements) and when my system would arrive.

As I said, once here, the system was easy to put together. The only problem that I faced was that the pump that is meant to move water up to the growbed above just wasn’t achieving the pressure needed. I searched online and found nothing and was shaking my head in disbelief. Finally, I took the grow bed and pump all the way out and I think that let the air that was stuck in there balance out. In any case, immediately after placing it back it worked as a charm. Now my AquaFarm is running well it seems and my new fish “Guns” seems very content with his new home.
