The nutrient rich water that results from fish farming provides a natural fertilizer for growing plants. While the plants consume the nutrients, they help to purify the water that the fish live in. This creates a sustainable eco system in which both the plants and fish thrive. Aquaponics is also the answer to a fish farmers problem of disposing of waste water and has an added benefit of having an alternative source of income from the plants.
Aquaponics does not need to be a commercial application only. Average households can benefit from having a small system that can supplement their daily food consumption by growing vegetables and herbs.
We can provide you with equipment and advice on starting a commercial aquaponics farm or for hobby purposes.
