What is Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is a soilless growing system much like hydroponics, but with a number of added benefits. An aquaponic system grows nutrient-rich healthy vegetables by sharing the water system with fish. The fish produce waste that in turn feeds a microbiome which produces nutrients for the plants, which in turn filter the water for the fish. It is a wonderful example of a symbiotic relationship and mimics our planets natural water environments.
