I am personally terrified of aquaponics. I have these grandiose ideas about a great fish farm that can also provide my plants with incredible nutrients as well.

Then I get terrified at the efficiency. The never-ending flow of fish. The vast number of preparations that would be required to keep up with the fish.

I have seen aquaponics in action. And what they do better than any other system is produce protein.

Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food

Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.

Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.

Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
