What exactly is the study of Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is the combined study of both aquaculture and hydroponics. With this combination of knowledge, you’re growing both fish and plants in a soilless environment. Through aquaponics, you are no longer the primary nutrient supplier to the system—your fish are. By providing a nutrient-rich feed, your fish will essentially fertilize the water and in turn, your plants will remove these vitamins and minerals from the water column to grow. With the creation of this unique system, you are quite literally building a symbiotic ecosystem. This circular concept is what makes our humanitarian mission possible.
