Aquaponics

GETTING STARTED

 

 

What is aquaponics?

It’s a system that combines aquaculture (fish farming) and hydroponics (growing plants in water) in an mutually beneficial environment. The fish excretion is broken down by nitrogen fixation, which provides nutrients essential to plant growth. This process serves as a natural fertilizer for the plants. In return, the plants help purify the water for the fish. Up to 98 percent of the water is recycled in this system.
