Aquaponics grows fish and plants in a symbiotic system. Through a closed-loop ecosystem, plants grow strong and fast by absorbing nitrates from fish water. Once the nitrates have been removed from the water it returns to the fish tank clean and oxygenated so the fish too can grow strong and fast. Aquaponics uses no soil and negligible amounts of water compared to conventional cultivation methods and is ideal for urban applications. Aquaponics provides high-quality, organic fish and vegetables grown without pesticides, herbicides, petrochemical fertilizers.

We at Aquaponics.Nu see aquaponics as a solution to many of the problems with the centralized food system. By proliferating the practice, and applying the method of aquaponics in urban areas we can relieve issues caused by conventional agricultural practices.
The application for aquaponics are endless: Educational institutions, corporations, small businesses, single-family homes and densely populated residential areas can all benefit from growing their own food. Aquaponics can also be used as an intervention in economically distressed regions to alleviate hunger and create new, local economies.
