What is Aquaponics?

Aquaponics-4-You-smallIn a time of crisis having an aquaponics system could be the difference between feeding your family and standing in the bread line.

I have come to see the major importance of having fresh organic ready to eat food, over having stock piles of freeze dried foods that could have all the nutrients taken out of them.

Aquaponics is a sustainable food production system that combines conventional aquaculture, (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks), with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In aquaculture, effluents accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity for the fish, resulting in the fish dying.

This water is sent to a hydroponic system or a flood and drain system where the by-products from the fish are broken down by nitrogen fixing bacteria, then filtered out by the plants as nutrients, after which the cleaned water is recirculated back to the animals.

As existing hydroponic and aquaculture farming techniques form the basis for all aquaponics systems, the size, complexity, and types of foods grown in an aquaponics system can vary as much as any system found in either distinct farming discipline.

So how do you get started? Well I asked the same question so I hit the internet to see what I could find. After hours and hours of searching I found Aquaponics 4 You. This product made it simple to figure out exactly how I would build my own aquaponics system.

The videos were easy to follow and understand and the bonus ebooks were full of great information.

If you are interested in getting started with aquaponics then I would highly suggest you check out Aquaponics 4 You. A simple investment of $37 can feed you and your family for a life time!
