My name is Alyssa Woodland and I am a grade 7 student at Linden Christian School in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I enjoy playing soccer, basketball, badminton, and track & field. I play trumpet in jazz band and french horn in concert band. I enjoy reading, sewing, and playing with my golden retriever Jazzy. The inspiration for my project came from my Grade 5 science fair project, where I compared the growth of plants watered with aquarium water versus tap water, which then led to me to aquaponics. I want to further my formulation to create a fish food that could feed adult tilapia. I want to encourage all students to explore the many different possibilities of aquaponics and explore ways to improve sustainable food production for our world.

Can My Self-Formulated Fish Food Provide a Sustainable Ecosystem?
Region:Manitoba Schools Science Symposium
City:Winnipeg, MB
School:Linden Christian School
Abstract:The purpose of my project was to formulate a fish food that could be completely produced in an aquaponics system. It was very important for it to be part of a sustainable eco-system and decrease the carbon footprint, environmental impact, and have food that is fresh, local, and organically grown.
