Aquaponics: 10 Quick & Essential Facts To Get Started
Additional filtration systems can be added to an existing aquaponic system
to remove excess waste in the water. An aquaponic system can also be
expanded again and again to support multiple grow beds.
A single holding tank with about seventy fish can support up to eight
individual grow beds with different vegetables planted in the grow bed
media. Aquaponics is so efficient that even commercial producers in the
United States, Canada, and throughout the world are using this technology to
produce both edible fish and fresh plant produce.
How Does an Aquaponics System Work?
The simplest aquaponic system requires only one tank that will act as both
the grow bed and holding tank. Holding tanks contain the water, and the
fish, while the grow beds contain the soil-less media and the plants.
