Aquaponics is the combination of Aquaculture (Raising fish) and Hydroponics (Growing plants in liquid). We pump the water (effluent) from our fish tanks into our plant grow beds. The fish effluent becomes the fertilizer for the plants! The plants love the natural fertilizer! The roots from the plants remove the nutrients from the water and grow big, green and healthy!  The clean water is then returned to our fish tanks for reuse. This process allows us to grow up to 30% more crops while using 90% less water than traditional growing methods!
