What Is Aquaponics: An Explanation
Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture and hydroponics working in perfect harmony to create an extremely efficient food production system.
When you have your own aquaponics system you are creating a cycle of life involving fish, plant and bacteria.
When you feed your fish, the bacteria turn the fish waste into plant food. Then the plants in turn clean the water that going back to your fish tank.
It is system which looks after itself because the plants also provide some of the food for the fish.
As you are using “fish poop” in the water to supply the nutrients for the plants there isn’t a need for artificial fertilizers or the addition of other potentially harmful chemicals too.
How Does Aquaponics Work?
Aquaponics works by recirculating water around the system so there is no need for soil. This means no weeding for you. Plus as the grow beds are at waist height there isn’t any bending down to tend your plants either.
This means you have very little work to do to maintain the precious ecosystem that’s right in your own backyard.
Aquaponics is the symbiotic relationship of plant and fish working in perfect harmony to produce 100% fresh organic produce to feed your family all year round.
Imagine having your own food production system that is 40% less work than conventional gardening and can produce over 600% (up to 1000%) more produce in the same size plot.
Are you right now wondering “how difficult would it be to set up my one aquaponics system?”.
Well as an 8 year aquaponics veteran I can tell you setting up your own system is simple. You only need three items:
1. A tank for your fish
2. A pump (can be easily sourced from an aquarium store)
3. A biological filter (also available from an aquarium store)
Then you are all set to have your own food production system in the comfort of your own home.
Aquaponics is a hobby that can be shared by the whole family allowing you to spend quality time together as you all learn in each other company.
