in process. aquaponics - the merge between aeroponics and aquaculture. Simply put. Fish tank
water is filtered through grow beds and recirculated back into the pond. Advantages over traditional
methods is 80% less water loss, faster and denser growth of veggies, fish growth = to amount of food
given. One 80 gal fish tank holds 80 talapia harvestable in 4 months avg 1 lb. this tank feeds 2 4x8
grow beds. Replensh water at 1% / week. No weeds to pull. Much fewer pests to control. 15 mins/ day
to test temp/water variables. NO pesticides allowed...would kill the fish! In fact only use natural ph
adjustments if necessary. Quantity. An Aquaponic farm of 2 acres with 12 greenhouses in the east us
produces enough food to feed 2000 people a year. Try that with agriculture!
