Aquaponics pioneer raising 'freshwater lobster,' year-round vegetables

•, Seth Slabaugh
Now, this region could spawn the nation’s first big commercial aquaponics facility — an organic food production system that would raise not only yellow perch, largemouth bass, bluegill, tilapia and “freshwater lobster,” but also fresh vegetables year round.
For seven years, Air Force veteran and tool and die maker Glynn Barber, 45, researched and developed the Environmentally Controlled Sustainable Integrated Agriculture (ESCIA) system, starting in his oversize garage.
After successfully operating a prototype in a new greenhouse next to the garage, he’s now ready to market the system, whose components are all made in Muncie and other local cities.
