Our Approach Plan your Project


Aquaponics is a concept that thrives on a symbiotic relationship between fish and crops. Through aerobic mineralization, organic fish excreta is used as the nutrient source to cultivate crops through soilless growing techniques. The plants and their growing media de-nitrify, de-mineralize, and filter organic solids from the water, which then returns to the fish environment to complete a flourishing ecosystem. Combined with a wide array of beneficial organisms (like bacteria, protozoa, fungii and worms) these systems provide for a high food production mechanism like no other.

Aquaponics uses 90% less water when compared to soil based agriculture and has a significantly less carbon footprint. The best part is that it does not require fertile land, in that it does not compete or operate to displace traditional farmers. It goes beyond just being environmentally friendly, it is environmentally regenerative and is a promising solution for the many issues we face in growing food in today’s industrialized and corporatized farming model.
