Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture (fish
farming) and hydroponics (soilless plant culture). In Aquaponics, the nutrient-rich water that results from raising
fish provides a source of natural fertilizer for the growing plants. As the plants consume the nutrients, they help
to purify the water that the fish live in. A natural microbial process keeps both the fish and plants healthy and helps
sustain an environment in which they both can thrive.
