What is Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is the cultivation of fish and plants together in a constructed, re-circulating ecosystem, utilizing natural bacterial cycles to convert fish wastes to plant nutrients. This is a natural food growing method that requires no soil, conserves water, and produces protein and vegetables at rates that exceed conventional farming. Aquaponics can be scaled up to a commercial level, and down to a simple backyard system for home food production.
