What is aquaponics? As it is commonly practiced throughout the world, most aquaculture methods allow fish waste to build up in the tank which can poison the fish over time and cause premature death. The water in an aquaponics tank is guided through a hydroponic system where the by-products from the aquaculture are filtered out by the plants that in turn use them as nutrients and then the clean water is recycled back to the fish tank.
The aquaponics how to website was created by people who are passionate about the systems and want to share their knowledge and expertise with like-minded people. Aquaponics uses the ideas from fish farming which is called aquaculture and soil-less farming which is commonly known as hydroponics. Both systems have been used successfully in their respective practices. Together they aim to reduce any adverse ecological effects by making these systems work collectively to achieve the desired result.
“You guys have a pretty nice website. I didn’t know the first thing about aquaponics and had to learn quickly because someone at work is always talking about it. I was up to speed in about thirty minutes and now I have a good idea of how to design and create a system.” – Russ Marigold
A basic aquaponics system which can be used both for indoor and outdoor purposes is not difficult to design or put together. In fact, many websites offer ready-made kits or people can buy the components from a local hardware store or hobby shop and build it in a day or two if not sooner.
