Basics of Aquaponics

Exactly what is aquaponics? If you want to know the basics of aquaponics you’ve come to the right place!

What is Aquaponics?

Aquaponics is the combination of two food production methods: Hydroponics and aquaculture, raising aquatic animals. In more basic terms, Aquaponics is growing fish and plants together. The fish produce the nutrients the plants need to grow and the plants clean the water for the fish. During this process, natural bacteria helps breakdown the fish waste and convert it into nutrients for the plants. This symbiotic process happens in every waterway on earth.

What are The Benefits?

Combining hydroponics and aquaculture has many potential benefits.

  • The plants get rich, live and natural nutrients from the fish
  • The fish are happier and healthier because their water is constantly filtered
  • You get healthier plants that require NO PESTICIDE
  • 100% organic food
