What is Aquaponics & How does it work?

Aquaponics gives you the healthy food at your fingertips

Aquaponics is a sustainable, living, freshwater ecosystem in a man-made structure where we grow healthy food for our families in any space.

The ecosystem involves fish (pets or edible fish) that produce fertiliser for the veggies, and the veggies filter the water for the fish and of course nitrifying bacteria that make this whole ecosystem work, just like in nature.

This all happens within our man-made ecosystem in a natural and harmonious way that is great for the environment, as well as your back pocket.

Everyone has a right to healthy food. Food free from pesticides and fungicides. Aquaponics is the perfect solution for healthy food, as any chemicals will kill the fish. It must be organic.
