Introduction to Aquaponics
The Holistic Design Approach to Growing Fish and Plants in Symbiosis
What if there was way to produce an abundance of organic food using up to 98% less water, while producing up to ten times more food in the same amount of area? What if you could achieve this using 1/4 the amount of energy, in a system that is totally scalable, does not require fertile soil, saves you lots of time and labor, makes you a good living and is incredibly sustainable? Well, the exciting news is that such a system of growing food exists! It’s called “Aquaponics” and it is a combination of Aquaculture and Hydroponics. It is one of the most sustainable and productive farming systems in the world! At a time of global climate change, historic drought, depletion of resources, pollution of water and huge losses of top soil worldwide, there has never been a more important time to learn about Aquaponics!
