What is Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is a combination of aquaculture, where fish and other aquatic animals are grown, and hydroponics, where plants are grown without soil.
Aquaponics uses both of these elements in synergy, i.e. the plants are fed by the waste products of aquatic animals. In exchange, the plants purify the water released to the fish.
It is an animal rearing and cultivation technique in a closed circuit ecosystem. Farmed fish are used to feed hydroponic plants.
Fish generate water pollution. A natural bacterial flora transforms this pollution into nutrients necessary for plant growth. Thus, this technique combines aquaculture with the culture of plants in water. It is an ecological and natural way to produce food. The following parts are covered:
