I’d prefer less pesticides in my food and aquaponics is making that easier to achieve for everyone. With a little help from fish, worms and helpful bacteria aquaponics is more sustainable than organic farming.
“In aquaponics, water is recirculated in a construct system that mimics a dynamic pond-like eco-system.”
An eco-system of plants and fish share nutrients, resulting in pesticide-free greens and mercury-free fish. The systems uses no soil and 90% of the water is recycled and produces higher yields that traditional soil based methods.
Both home growers and commercial farmers who wants to produce food sustainably are making this more than a trend – a way of life.
