What's Good About Aquaponics?
  • Recycles water and nutrients environmental friendly.
  • Uses 90% less water than ground crops.
  • Eliminates chemicals and pesticides.
  • Eliminates soil-bourne diseases.
  • Is a sustainable source of fish and vegetables at your back door.
  • Is a family activity that promotes healthy eating and helps to stretch food budgets.
  • Provides a great way to teach children how to grow food and care for living things.
  • Vegetables can be organic from day one, instead of waiting several years to certify land
    where herbicides, pesticides and non-organic fertilizers have been used.

  • Fish can be organic if natural feeds like soldier fly larvae or azolla are used as feed.
    Can be scaled up to a small or large profitable, production.
