University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is partnering with a Montello company to build an Aquaponics Innovation Center that will train workers and develop new techniques for a growing food production industry.

The center will be located inside a 13,500 square-foot greenhouse at Nelson and Pade, a Montello company that specializes in commercial aquaponics, which combines fish farming with hydroponic agriculture. Co-owner Rebecca Nelson said the center will benefit both the company and the university.
