How to Find Temperature Ranges for Aquaponics

You can use the USDA Hardiness Zones to find out plants that will easily grow in your area, but finding the exact temperature ranges tells you what types of fish and aquatic life you can harvest too. Here is how to find the local temperature for your area.

Find Your Local Temperature

I used data from sources like:
http://www.weather.com/weather/wxclimatology/monthly/graph/85201.

Here is the temperature ranges for Mesa, AZ:

Month Max Low Avg Low Median Avg High Max High
Jan 15 41 54 67 89
Feb 19 45 58 71 95
Mar 24 49 63 77 99
Apr 30 54 69.5 85 106
May 37 61 77.5 94 118
Jun 43 70 87 104 116
Jul 54 77 91.5 106 119
Aug 51 76 90 104 115
Sep 40 70 84.5 99 113
Oct 30 59 74 89 107
Nov 22 47 61 75 97
Dec 17 40 53.5 67 86

I use this data to help me decide when and what is able to exist in my aquaponics system. If I move or setup in a different area, I’ll have to figure out the temperature ranges and USDA Hardiness zones for that area too.
