How does it work / what is aquaponics ?

Aquaponics is very similar to hydroponics – where you grow your plants only using water.

However the key difference is that the water will contain fish – so you only have to feed the fish and their excrement will nourish the plants.

The advantages of using aquaponics to grow plants are

Same advantages as hydroponics – i.e.

  • no soil required,
  • easier to grow & manage plants, etc.

.

However, in addition:

  • Aquaponics can be cheaper to operate as fish feed is often cheaper than the nutrients added to the water in an hydroponic system
  • Once well established (after about 6 months) it can produce even faster growth and better yields than hydroponics.
  • Easier to get fully organic plants.
  • The fish can be very appealing to households (with big or little children)

.

Why is this aquaponics kit ideal for gardens ?

It will generate enough fresh vegetables, herbs and salads to provide a couple (or small family) throughout the year.  (as well as being able to stock 3.5 kg of fish)

    It’s not very pretty or nice to look at but… It is a great & very cost effective way to grow fresh vegetables and herbs at home, and even (if you wanted to) grow fish you could sell at a profit. Nice little unit
