AQUAPONICS


Study Aquaponics and learn to grow fish and crop plants in the same system.

 
Aquaponic systems fall into two main groups – those that recirculate the water between fish rearing tanks and crop `grow out’ beds and those which simply use the fish waste water for crop production but do not recirculate the water back to the fish tanks. Both are considered `aquaponic’ systems and both are in use commercially for the production of fish and hydroponic plants.
