4.5 star rating ebook

Aquaponics at home: growing fish & vegetables

Have you ever wondered what aquaponics was all about? Is it viable for 
your situation? This ebook is a good overview to help answer these 
questions and more.


Aquaponics is the revolutionary science where plants are grown in water 
instead of soil. This water also cultures fish. The wastes produced by the 
farmed fish or other aquatic creatures supplies the nutrients for the plants, 
and in turn purifies the water.

Aquaponics, when set up correctly, can, be self-sustaining and, be a healthy 
source for both fish and plants.

Aquaponics At Home is a beginner's guide to this hobby. You are given the 
fundamentals to this wonderful and exciting way to garden, including the 
components you need, and ways to set up your own healthy aquaponic system that 
provides safe, fresh, and delicious food all year round.

Sample text:

A combination of hydroponics, which is growing plants with water instead of soil and aquaculture or raising fish is known as aquaponics. When correctly set up, aquaponics can be used to create a symbiotic system where plants, fish and bacteria live together and mutually benefit from the presence of each other.


Commonly, fresh water fish are used for aquaponics. The bacteria present is good bacteria that aids in breaking down waste from the fish. The plants grow in a soil-less environment and are fertilized by the waste excrement from the fish.  Plants also tend to grow very rapidly in this type of situation.  In return, the plants oxygenate and clean the water, and it is then re-circulated back to the fish.  


Typically, only the water that is evaporated from the plants, needs to be replaced, roughly 2% every week or so.  Once a system is set up, the maintenance is fairly low.


Both the fish and the vegetables or other types of plants grown are used as a healthy food source.  


Some forms of aquaponics can be dated back to as early as some of the Aztec civilizations.  However, aquaponics seems to be making a modern come-back in more recent years. 


Many nations are actively educating their people on the practice of aquaponics to both increase healthy, clean food supplies, and decrease the need to import food.  In Barbados in particular, they are also encouraged to sell their grown vegetables to tourists to help families increase their income levels additionally.
