Symbiotic relationships just feel good...Am I right? The ability to grow both fish and plants within the same environment is pretty remarkable. From tomatoes to tilapia, we've created some amazing systems. Let our team assist in designing a system that is perfect for your project as well as both ecosystems.
We assemble our aquatic teams based on your needs to ensure that you are receiving the most up-to-date information and designs. Whether you are in the market for a turnkey aquatic design or just need to order a product, we can assist you.
No two projects are alike therefore we take an individualized approach in our process. We first have a discussion session to determine your goals and expected outcome, as well as any challenges that may impact the build. Then we put our talented engineers to task developing solutions that are right for your unique needs. We are your partner every step of the way.
We offer training to organizations like yours to learn the technical details of aquatic systems and maintenance. Training includes technology applications, product solutions and more. These skills are aquatic specific and we can customize the training to fit your needs. If you prefer a classroom setting be sure to check out seminars and workshops.

Reacting to news of Pentair's departure from the industry, the executives at Aquatic Equipment and Design (AED) gave assurance to the aquaculture industry it still has "a partner in aquaculture supplies and design."
"Huy and I are proud to have been able to learn from Bob and continue his mission and values today," Riedel-Stone said in a statement.
This is an often talked about topic that has a rather polarized following. In terms of system filtration components that can sterilize water, the most common methods in our industry are UV and ozone. We have already covered UV and its complexities so this time we will cover ozone.
First, what is the difference between ozone and UV? Well, ozone is a nonselective oxidizer that breaks down anything that is organic by rupturing the cell wall. UV changes the DNA structure of the organism through irradiation. For UV to be effective, the UV light must penetrate the organism and cannot be shaded by particulates in the water flow. Ozone, on the other hand, can be effective even in less clear water.

Mike Frinsko - Aquaculture Extension Agent at North Carolina State University
Huy is the most honest and experienced Aquatics engineer I've ever met. I work at a fairly large public aquarium and Huy has always taken time to answer our questions and has helped us tremendously in the design and maintenance of our Life Support wing. His knowledge ranges from aquaculture, life support, to exhibit design, system troubleshooting and everything in between.
- Chris Okamoto - Aquarist at Cabrillo Marine Aquarium
Huy is a great resource in aquaponic systems. I have never had a question or problem he could not answer knowledgeably.
- Jeffery W. - NPD Engineer/Project Manager
The entire crew at AED have been top notch. Cindy and Wendy go above and beyond with locating the right parts and getting what I need on time.
