How are we going to manage to grow enough food to keep up and what’s the solution for severe global shortages?
WHAT IS AQUAPONICS?
Aquaponics refers to the relationship between water, aquatic organisms, bacteria, nutritional dynamics, and plants that grow together in water areas worldwide.
HOW DOES AQUAPONICS WORK?
Aquaponics is a blending of three important conditions, combining fish farming with hydroponics (soilless gardening) in the presence of beneficial bacteria.
WHAT ARE THE ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS OF AQUAPONICS?
There are many reasons to choose commercial and small-scale home aquaponics systems over traditional methods of farming fish and vegetables separately. Aquaponics is an eco-friendly, organic, cost-effective, innovative, and highly marketable method of cultivation.
