Growing Fish, Chips and Peas

A collaboration with Something and Son


We worked with Something and Son to help create an aquaponics system to farm fish and chips. This project explores potential food production techniques; the greenhouse provides growing conditions, including light, temperature and nourishment for potato plants, pea plants, and fish in specially adapted tanks creating a zero waste energy cycle and miniature ecosystem. Our role focused on developing the lighting control and sensors for the project. The fish and chips were grown in a polly-tunnel, situated on the roof of Folkestone Academy school, during Folkestone Triennial festival 2014.
