Aquaponics

What is Aquaponics?

The simplest way to explain aquaponics is hooking up your fish tank to your veggie garden. In other words, it is a system that combines aquaculture and plants. The veggie garden is different to a typical soil garden - instead of soil, plants live in an hydroponics system that keeps the aquaponics system clean and healthy, and accelerates growth. Fish are placed in a tank and the waste they produce (yes, I do mean poo) is converted into nutrients that feed the plants. The plants then filter and clean the water, which keeps the fish happy.
