What is Aquaponics?

Aquaponics CycleAquaponics is the integration of aquaculture (fish farming) and hydroponics (growing plants in water) in a water-circulating, soil-less system.  The natural bacteria in the ecosystem converts waste from the fish to nutrients which is absorbed by the plants and removed from the water.  This growing method requires minimal water usage and no chemical fertilizers while providing organic produce and fish from the system. For some great aquaponics videos see our What is Aquaponics page.
