What Is Aquaponics?

Aquaponics is the incredible process of growing fish and plants together, to the benefit of both. Making full use of the by-products of growing fish allows nutrients and organic fertilizer to be freely provided naturally for the plants. This replicates the processes found in nature and provides a fresh, organic alternative to traditional gardening. There are many benefits to growing your vegetables and herbs using Aquaponics:

  • Environmentally friendly! Uses 90% less water than soil-based gardening
  • No synthetic fertilizers or chemical pesticides needed
  • Low maintenance: no weeding, no watering, no dirt
  • Low cost: After setup, just plug in and feed the fish
  • Grow fresh fish and vegetables year round, in any season
