Aquaponics  Introduction

Aqua-what? 

Aquaponics is the combined practice of raising fish (called Aquaculture) and growing plants in water (called Hydroponics)! 

How Does it Work?

  1. Fish or other aquatic animals are raised in a tank
  2. Plants are grown in another tank or container, suspended in water
  3. Waste water is pumped from the fish tank to the plant roots
  4. Helpful germs in the roots of the plants break down fish waste into vitamins and nutrients
  5. Newly purified water is drained back into fish tank
  6. Aquaponic System Repeats
