Description

What Is Aquaponics Aquaponics is essentially the combination of Aquaculture and Hydroponics. Both aquaculture and hydroponics have some down sides, hydroponics requires expensive nutrients to feed the plants, and also requires periodic flushing of the systems which may end up in waste disposal issues. Re-circulating aquaculture needs to have excess nutrients removed from the system, generally which means a percentage of the water is removed, normally each day. This nutrient rich water then needs to be disposed of and replaced with clean fresh water. Whilst re-circulating aquaculture and hydroponics are both very efficient methods of producing fish and vegetables, when we look at combining the two, these negative aspects are turned into positives. The positive aspects of both aquaculture and hydroponics are retained and the negative aspects no longer exist. Aquaponics can be as simple or as complex as you’d like to make it, the simple system pictured above is made from one IBC (Intermediate Bulk Container). The top was bring to an end and turned upside down to turn into a growbed for the plants. Water is pumped up from the fish tank into the growbed. The water trickles down through the media, past the roots of the plants before draining back into the fish tank. The plants extract the water and nutrients they want to grow, cleaning the water for the fish. There are bacteria that continue to exist the surface of the growbed media. These bacteria convert ammonia wastes from the fish into nitrates that can be used by the plants. The conversion of ammonia into nitrates is incessantly termed “the nitrogen cycle”.
