Not everyone knows what "aquaponics" is. Let me give a simple explanation, from someone who knows nothing about growing plants. Put simply, aquaponics is growing fish and using the water from the fish to grow plants, usually vegetables.

Why is the water from the fish used to grow plants? Because it contains nutrients that help grow the plants. Another word you could use in place of nutrients is, fertiliser. Natural fertaliser ! All you do is feed the fish, and their waste becomes the food for your vegetables. You end up with fresh fish, and your own veggies. You know there are no chemicals, horemones or anything you don't want to eat, AND . . . the fish are loaded with omega-3. Click for omega-3 details.

COMBINING THE GROWING OF PLANTS WITH AQUATIC ANIMALS, in other words, FISH.

The idea of growing a few veggies in the back yard is nothing new. It's been around as long as the back yard. In fact, growing "veggies" probably resulted in the invention of the back yard. No longer hunter foragers, humans became farmers. These days growing plants in the back yard is done, more for love than necessity. (Perhaps during this difficult time, it's more of a necessity.)  The opportunity has now presented itself to actually make extra use of the water we use to grow the "veggies".

We grew all these cherry tomatoes in a few weeks. Only me and my wife, too many for us to eat.

We were already growing a few perch for our own consumption. All we did was run the water from our perch tank through a tank where we had vegitables in a floating raft. We fed the fish just as we had been doing for months. After the water passed through the filter, and before it went back to the fish tank, it went through the vegitable tank. I can't believe how easy it is.

Did you know Australian native fresh water fish are grown on commercial farms around the world . . . The short video below shows the contrast between a backyard system and large commercial facilities in Hong Kong and Singapore.
