Not Thai Farming per se, but the concept could easily be done here and I've done some keyboard research into it as we are Fish Farmers already.
So, to an 'Outback' Pub in Australia ...

The historic North Gregory Hotel in Winton is not the sort of place where patrons would expect fresh locally grown barramundi
and greens, but thanks to an outback aquaponics system the pub is working to do just that.
The sound of running water heralds an unusual sort of outback organic garden at the pub, which hosted the first public performance
of Waltzing Matilda in 1895.
Aquaponics is a system where fish are raised in tanks and plants are used to clean the water.
The plants are fertilised in the process and both fish and plants end up on the table.
The closed loop system works well in the outback because no water is wasted and the plants do not need fertiliser.
Ben Casey, manager of the North Gregory Hotel, said that people were often intimidated by aquaponics, but it was a relatively simple system.
"Aquaponics is fantastic — it's the lazy man's gardening," he said.
"Some people can be scared of it because it sounds scary but it really can be very simple."
Waist-high beds clad in rusted corrugated iron surround the fish tanks that are shaped like outback dunnies.
"They literally are a dunny, they're a dunny for the fish," Mr Casey said.
The two tanks contain two native species of fresh water fish, the well known barramundi and the lesser known jade perch or Barcoo grunter.
Mr Casey said "we keep those guys separate because the barramundi will eat the jade perch".
He said the fish that the system was growing were a couple of months off eating. Source
