Aquaponics Resources

With increasing awareness of limited land and water resources along with an increasing desire to develop sustainable food sources, people are considering strategies for growing food in controlled Aquaponics environments: Integrated systems of growing fish and plants, utilizing recirculating water systems. We are including resources relating to system setup, growing fish and plants, water quality, as well as permits, safety, and other unique aspects of an aquaponics growing system.
