Rob Nash is the owner/operator of Austin Aquaponics.com and HannaLeigh Farm based out of Austin, Texas. He has been designing and implementing commercial scale aquaponic systems since 2005. Rob combined his years of hands on experience with training from Dr. Rakocy on the UVI model at Nelson & Pade aquaponics in 2010, to pioneer one of the first commercial operations to implement the popular, integrated or media-raft-hybrid commercial systems. Rob's passion for and dedication to educating others about this industry has allowed him to become a sought-after source of knowledge in the southern region, where he has taught hundreds of students. His farm and aquaponic systems have been showcased on The Central Texas Gardener and InfoWars.com in 2013. He currently offers training workshops, consultation, and build/design of aquaponic systems for the beginner to advanced gardener, as well as commercial-minded Aquapon.
