As interest in sustainable food production grows, more and more people are asking:
What is aquaponics?
Aquaponics is a method of growing food without using soil. Instead, you grow plants in water. It is a type of hydro-culture. Hydro-culture uses nutrients dissolved in the water to grow plants. A different kind of hydro-culture is hydroponics.
Aquaponics uses the hydroponics as part of the overall aquaponics system. Aquaponics also makes use of the aquaculture system. Aquaculture involves the cultivation of aquatic animals in a fish tank.
Some people refer to aquaponics as hydroponics with fish or organic hydroponics.
What is hydroponics?
Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture, which is a method of growing plants without soil, by instead using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent.
