What is Aquaponics?

Aquaponics is a synergistic growing technique in which fish (aquaculture) and plants (hydroponics) are grown together in the same systems. The fish waste feeds the growing plants using organic hydroponic techniques. The plants, in turn, clean and filter the water that returns to the fish environment.
