Aquaponics is a sustainable food production method that combines advanced aquaculture with hydroponics.
Fish, crustaceans, and mollusks are raised and farmed in tanks, and using the biofiltered, nutrient rich water from the aquaculture, plants are grown without soil.
Aquaponics produces fresh, organic fish and other aquatic food, and non-GMO fruits and vegetables free from chemicals and fertilizers.
