About

Aquaculture means cultivating fish for food in a controlled environment, and harvesting them when they reach the appropriate size. Due to over-fishing and degradation of natural habitats, aquaculture has become an environmentally and socially sound alternative to commercial fishing. Aquaculture reduces the dependency on wild fish populations as a food source.

Urban aquaculture

Jul

Aquaponics is a sustainable system for producing food that combines hydroponics (growing plants in water) with aquaculture. Toxins and waste products that accumulate in the water during aquaculture are filtered out by plants, which in turn use the waste products as nutrients. The cleansed water returns to the aquatic livestock’s tank and the system begins again. This type of recirculating aquaculture system reduces or eliminates the need for antibiotics and chemicals to control disease in captive fish populations.
