Aquaponics: Using Fish Poop to Grow Vegetables
Aquaponics is one of the most productive and sustainable food production systems in the world! It is a combination of Aquaculture (farming fish) and Hydroponics (growing plants with out soil) in which both fish and plants benefit from one another! The production levels of Aquaculture and Hydroponics combined far exceed that of either system alone.
Nor Cal Aquaponics is one of, if not the first in the world to offer systems, trainings, knowledge and experience in a Permaculture based Aquaponics design methodology, we call Closed-Loop Aquaponics.
