Aquaponics is a bio-integrated food system which allows the production of both plants and animals for consumption without requiring
arable land. It is the integration of hydroponics (growing without soil) and aquaculture (Fish farming). Plants situated on waterbeds are grown
with aquatic life usually fish. The intricate design allows for the waste products of one biological system to serve as nutrients for another.
The system recycles a lot of raw materials put into the system and makes the process very efficient. Plant growth is drastically increased as the threat of pest and weed is reduced as plants are grown indoors and the water is naturally fortified by the fish.
One would wonder the difference between aquaponics and hydroponics but it is simple to differentiate. The difference is that hydroponics is a method of growing plants on water rather than using soil while aquaponics is the combination of hydroponics and aquaculture (Fish Farming) that grows fish and plant in one integrated system.
