TalentView: Verde en Concreto

    Share this article

    With rising population and concerns for the environment, the food production industry has had to become innovative. One of these innovations is Aquaponics systems. Aquaponics uses a recirculated water aquaculture system to grow fish and vegetables at the same time.

    This system provides a symbiotic relationship between fishes and greens with bacteria in between. Recently I had the opportunity to have a chat with Ali Oliveros for our TalentView. He lives in Venezuela and is currently working on several aquaponic projects like Verde en Concreto (Green on Concrete) and GRO Urban Farms.

    Ali’s story caught my interest for several reasons, but I will just tell you about his project and history and you will see why. Verde en Concreto is currently a showcase small production, but Ali’s project is bigger than that. He currently has 150 square meters of production, working with Tilapia and producing mostly 5 types of tomatoes.
