An aquaponics farm grows in Manorville: Farm above, fish below

Patrick Durkin has been converting a former Manorville commercial fish farm into an aquaponics operation where fish and plants grow together. Fresh-picked watercress, mint and Vietnamese coriander are already available at Fruit of Life Aquaponics, Durkin’s nascent operation, and rosemary is almost ready for harvesting. Durkin, 30, of Manorville, said aquaponics is the urban farming of the future.
