Can you imagine walking out your back door to snip a few fresh chives for your baked potato? Or the satisfaction from growing that potato in the first place? Or how about plucking blueberries for your morning cereal from a container on your balcony or deck?
Aquaponics is a food production system that combines conventional AquaCulture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in water tanks), with HydroPonics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In this system, water animals give what plants need and plants give what animals need.
