Greenhouse uses fish to clean water for vegetables

A greenhouse in Camp Verde is using science to create a sustainable growing operation using fish. Catfish and bluegill, specifically.B.J. Davis lifts one of the rafts the plants grow in, showing off their root systems and the nutrient-rich water underneath.

Tucked away among the pastoral scenes frequent off of Grippen Road, The Fish’s Garden is the carefully-crafted work of B.J. and Cat Davis, two people that wanted to help contribute to their community while making a living to boot.


The greenhouse held an open house to let the public see what it is all about last week.

The 3,000-square-foot greenhouse is home to a labyrinth of pipes circulating air and water throughout the operation. Several large blue 500-gallon tanks sit on a raised platform, where hundreds of fish swim together.

About 150 fish are kept in each of the tanks and when they are ready, they are sold.
