Aquaponics, a brief overview

Aquaponics is the combination of Aquaculture and Hydroponics.

  • An efficient method to produce fish and plants (and food gardens)
  • Easy to create (there are many ’how to’ examples available)
  • For small and large spaces at a low start and run cost
  • Aquaponic systems use about 1/10th of the water used to grow vegetables in the ground
  • A small area aquaponics system can produce hundreds of kilos of fish and food year round!
  • This is a system that requires no high impact physical demands, no weeding or fertilizers, and only uses about the same power to run a few light globes!
  • You can do this in your carport, your side garden or even in the shed…..
