Aquaponics

Aquaponics is a sustainable farming practice that combines aquaculture, which is the raising of fish, and hydroponics, which is the raising of plants in water. The water from the fish tanks is pumped into growing beds containing the plants. That water contains the effluent or “fish poop” which is a highly nutritious fertilizer for the plants. In return, the plants help to filter and oxygenate the water so that it can be returned into the fish tank. This symbiotic relationship enables us to produce an abundance of healthy, fresh fish and vegetables without the use of chemical fertilizers.
