What is Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture (fish farming), hydroponics (growing plants without soil in nutrient rich water), and microorganisms. The product is a synergistic and environmentally sustainable growing technique in which both fish and plants are grown together in the same system without needing to discard water or add chemical fertilizers.
Aquaponics solves many of the problems and environmental issues associated with aquaculture and hydroponics while retaining the benefits of both. It’s essentially zero-waste agriculture.
