WHAT IS AQUAPONICS
GET TO KNOW WITH US THE ADVANTAGES OF AQUAPONICS.
Aquaponics is an economical system of food production which connects fish breeding and growing of the plants without soil. The word aquaponics consists of two main elements of this system:
AQUAculture + hydroPONICS = AQUAPONICS
It seems simple, basically it is about recirculation system of intensive fish breeding in artificial tanks and pumping of the water into hydroponic part in which the plants take part of the nutrients for their growth, the water is biologically and mechanically cleared and goes back into the fish tank. Compared to the common fish breeding the dirty water is not let out into the environment, instead it circulates constantly in the system. This way it is a really ecological way of fish breeding. From the biological point of view it is an almost closed ecosystem which works on the principles similar, for example, to the pond ecosystem.
This system is widespread in many countries all around the world. Mostly in the United States and Australia. In these countries there exist nowadays farms for conventional use of aquaponics cultivation which provide this way fresh vegetables and fish meat into local market all year-round. In Europe there are only first projects coming into being. These could be small excited attempts which does not have to always end with success. However, abroad we meet most of the time functional garden systems which can steadily produce vegetables and fish for a small family and this way supplement partly the need of fresh foodstuff.
The last type of aquaponic system are the middle-sized ones and large commercial systems which produce vegetables and fish meat for sale or to local restaurants. Between small, middle-sized and large systems are many differences but all the systems have one thing in common – they are biological processes which make long-term functioning of the system with low contribution of nutrients, energy and human labour possible.
