I have read several books and researched the websites on this subject and it is more than what anyone can hope.
The merging of two independent technologies that become a model of life in the real world.
Aquaponics merges the famracolocy of fish farming along with plant farming...without the use of soil.
Yea you read it right ..You can grow plants without soil.
Unfortunately, you need to add nutrients to the water in order to grow plants in this way, Bujt if you recycle the water from a fish tank into the
grow beds then they rid the grower of the need to use nutrients or any other unnatural ingredients.
to put it simply ... 1 cubic foot of fish in water will grow 2 cubic foot of veggies. At least.
The fish excrement is food for the vegies and the method of feeding the plants purifies the water that is returned to the fish tank /
The fish and the veggies are harvest-able and the system needs no herbicides. This is established technology.
I'm not telling anything new . I am telling you something doable in your backyard or spare room.
