DID YOU KNOW?
Aquaponics refers to any system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as fish in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In normal aquaculture, excretions from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity. In an aquaponic system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by Nitrifying bacteria into nitrates and nitrites, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients, and the water is then recirculated back to the aquaculture system.
THE BENEFITS ARE?
The food is grown, aquaponically tastes better than conventionally or hydroponically grown food. Perhaps it is the simplicity and natural way it works. With no chemicals to alter or mask the vegetable’s true taste, it simply tastes better. It also lasts longer! Aquaponics not only grows veggies and fruit, there’s also great tasting fish! And you can enjoy our food and know that there are no added hormones or antibiotics. Aquaponics is absolutely the answer for how we are going to grow and get our food for the future.
