Aquaponics Which Involve Fish and Taro: Exhibit at the “Hyatt Regency”

Aquaponics Which Involve Fish and Taro: Exhibit at the “Hyatt Regency”

If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.


Apologies, these photos, and videos are of amateur quality; however, on July 24, 2017, the aquaponics display at the “Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa” was captured on camera.

Regardless, hopefully you will be able to glean some knowledge or insight from this display. At least two things are noteworthy here.

One is that the aquaponics system was working, meaning that the fish were swimming and the water was flowing. Too many times, public and semi-public water fountains do not function. Second is the interpretation of the aquaponics system: how much information does one reveal? How much should the display be educational versus be commercial or cultural? Such is the work of “interpreting” a biological system or a site or a park.
