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.

Our Aquaponics Systems:

  • Produce up to 100% of the system's needs within the system itself!
  • Use up to 98% less water than conventional farming methods!
  • Produce up to ten times more vegetables and crops in the same amount of space and time!
  • Use up to 75% less energy than almost any other farming method!
  • Are guaranteed to be free from chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other chemicals!
  • Require only about 1/2 the labor required by almost all other food production methods!
  • Virtually eliminates weeds, pests, diseases, viruses and pathogens for both aquatic and plant life alike!
  • Can be used in almost any situation and can range in size, from desk top systems to large scale commercial farms!
  • Saves time, money and labor in all stages of production!
  • Don't require soil, enabling otherwise "undesirable" sites or land to be used to produces fresh, organic fish, vegetables, fruit and more!

    The Soil-Food Web

    The soil food web is a diverse community of organisms living all or part of their lives in the soil. It describes complex living systems in the soil and how they co-exist and interact with each other, the environment, plants, and animals. These organisms are not only responsible for decomposing organic matter, creating soil structure, recycling and creating nutrients, but also support healthy plant systems and tissue, preventing harmful fungus, root rot, pests, even viruses and disease.
