Aquaponics technology, the combination of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics
(the soil-less growing of plants) that grows fish and plants together in a single,
integrated system, is popular among major growers and hobbyists alike. In an
aquaponics system, fish waste provides an organic food source for the plants, and
the plants naturally filter the water for the fish.
Nitrifying bacteria, present in all aquatic systems housing fish and other
livestock, convert ammonia from the fish waste first into nitrites, and then into
nitrates which plants uptake through their root systems as a food source. Solid
fish waste is turned into vermicompost that also acts as food for the plants.
Combining hydroponics and aquaculture, aquaponics capitalizes on the benefits of
each, but care must be taken to achieve a healthy balance in the system.
Concentrations of ammonia must be monitored carefully to avoid the disease
