In a society where Sustainable, Green, Organic and Locally grown no longer associate with simply a marketing strategy but are becoming household terms of a pure food revolution. Aquaponics is leading the way in this revolution by offering products that are defined by these words. Finding its place in a transitioning social stigma where significance is rendered to the source of our food and the means of its production.
Modern farming has witnessed over a century of innovation changing in many ways the very foundation it was built upon. Technology has penetrated the science of food production to the extent of making the benefits of its penetration questionable. Organic nutrient processing systems, such as Aquaponics present a whole new world of opportunity for today’s farmer. Our state-of-the-art Aquaponic greenhouse designs allow systems to flourish in various climactic conditions utilizing local materials and resources. Eliminating the concept of waste management and turning management into utilization therefore implementing the Cradle to Cradle philosophy in the practice of food production is just the brink of our corporate vision and our intent is to make that vision practical and feasible at all levels.
Aquaponics is a revolutionary concept that features a symbiotic relationship between fish and crop, where organic fish waste is used as the nutrient source to grow food crops through hydroponic techniques. The plants and their media, in turn, de-nitrify and filter the water, which is then returned to the fish environment to complete a flourishing ecosystem. This phenomenon together with naturally available nitrifying bacteria and compost worms create a naturally abundant food supply system that is sustainable and pure.
Requiring only 10% of the water used by traditional soil based agriculture Aquaponics can sustainably produce food without the need for any enhancing chemical. Aquaponics is an all weather solution that is independent of land quality and water availability. This highly-scalable food system when designed suitably, outputs valuable plant crops as well as freshwater fish and crustaceans.AP101
