Aquaponics Food:Healthy, Environmentally Friendly FoodAquaponics is an environmentally-friendly, natural food growing method to facilitate the cultivation of fish and plants together in a constructed, re-circulating ecosystem utilizing natural bacterial cycles to convert fish wastes to plant nutrients. It is also called as recirculation farming.
Rick updates us on his DIY aquaculture and hyrdroponics project. Aquaculture is like organic gardening in a closed system using fish and the waste water from the fish feeding the plants, and the filtered water is then returned back to the fish tank. If you already have a goldfish pond, you are that much closer to having an aquaculutre system. What kind of fish to use, what is the difference between hyrdoponics and aquaculture, and how you can build an inexpensive hydroponics system using 5 gallon buckets and PVC pipe.
Aquaponics Tomatoes Are Most Requested CropTomatoes are the single most requested crop to grow in the Portable Farms™ Aquaponics Systems. The expected yields in this article are based on growth from a single Grow Tray (shown below) and are very conservative. They are based on the lowest yield per plant, the shortest harvest cycle and the longest time a plant will remain in the Grow Tray Table of the system.

Sylvia Bernstein: Feeding The World With Aquaponics
With the growing demand for organic food production, more and more people are looking at sustainable models that will produce a high yield without necessarily having to farm a large acreage. One of the most popular methods is called.....
Aquaponics Now Has an International OrganizationPerhaps you have seen articles about aquaponics in the media. Just a little bit of web research shows that aquaponics is definitely a hot topic in urban food communities across the country and around the world.
Aquaponics: Hydroponics Meets AquacultureBy Dr. Joshua Strange, Two Rivers Tribune Contributing Writer
When you grow plants for food, you need to feed the plants nutrients so they will grow well. When you grow fish for food, you need to remove their nutrient rich wastes so they will grow well. Aquaponics takes these two problems and combines them to form a common solution: use the wastes from growing fish to feed plants, which in turn clean the water so fish can thrive. Innovative solutions that turn wastes into valuable resources are a hallmark of sustainability.

Urban Agriculture: AquaponicsBob Ewing – Food, we all eat it, or at least we want and need to, how we meet that daily demand varies culturally, economically, socially and psychologically. In the past two articles, I have been focusing on the economic aspects, and will continue to do so today.
Aquaponics is gaining in popularity across the country, both small scale backyard projects and larger scale commercial efforts are establishing themselves as viable enterprise.
