What is Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is a highly productive farming solution combining the core principles of Aquaculture and Hydroponics by raising fish on land and growing plants without soil, respectively, within a closed-loop ecosystem.
Fish create waste, and the waste yields fresh nutrition for organic plants – no pesticides, no fertilizer – just plants and water. The food created through aquaponics is fresh, healthy, and organic.
This system actually goes back thousands of years. It was used by both Aztecs and Chinese farmers to provide sustenance for their people.
Now, with the integration of modern technology, Aquaponics has begun a resurgence. It is emerging as a solution for providing food security in impoverished communities, as a desirable method of urban farming, and as an environmentally-friendly way to increase healthy food production.
