More Aquaponics

how-to aquaponics

Aquaponics is a new approach to farming. Unlike traditional land based agriculture where you need soil to grow vegetables, aquaponics requires only fish and water to produce healthy food for your table each and every day.

Basically, aquaponics rely on the interdependence between fish and plants: the fish produces bio-nutrients for the plants, while the plants clean the water, creating a perfect environment for the fish to grow and develop.

It is a blend of aquaculture and hydroponics.

If you want more details on how to make your own aquaponics system I recommend this guide.

Here are some advantages to starting your own aquaponic system.

Organic Food

First of all, you will have fresh organic food on your table every day. You simply take your tomato, cucumber, or basil from the aquaponic “field” and use it for your meals. It is as easy as it sounds.

Plenty of Fish

The second best thing about it is that you not only grow vegetables, but you also have plenty of fish. Whether you want them for cooking tasty meals or simply for your décor, they are a great addition in your home. They also have a practical purpose, as you will never have to use chemical fertilizers on your plants, resulting in your own organic food.

Financial Independence

Another great advantage of aquaponic farming is that it offers you financial independence and more control over your money. You will know exactly how much you need to spend on your food, and you will no longer depend on the market for your vegetables.

Easy to Use

Not only will you be able to assemble the aquaponic system all by yourself without professional help, but you can also put it wherever you like. If you move from one house to another, then you simply disassemble the system and take it with you! What can be easier than that?

No Strenuous Work

Last, but not least, aquaponics involves no dirty hands and clothes, no bending and digging, no land, and little maintenance time, so it will be like your veggies and fish grow all by themselves. It’s quite easy to put this system into practice, and it’s suitable for all types of people, even for busy and impatient ones!

There are plenty advantages that the aquaponic system offers you: your health and your comfort will improve, and your savings will improve also with the constant use of the aquaponic farming! Why not give it a try?
