Aquaponics can be thought of as the marriage of aquaculture and hydroponics. In this closed loop system, water containing fish waste is pumped into a soil-less veggie grow bed where that water is utilized as fertilizer by the plants. The now cleaned water is then returned to the fish tank, clean and oxygenated. This cycle results in higher yields than conventional gardening, while using only a fraction of the water and energy required in terrestrial cultivation. Plus, you get the fish! Once the system is set up, all that is required is fish feed and a very small amount of electricity to run a pump and an airstone. This can easily be connected to a solar panel for off-the-grid production! Book a consultation with us today to see how we can help your home or business!
