A small, portable aquaponics system
Growing Power Aquaponics / ækwəpɒnɨks / is the symbiotic cultivation of plants and aquatic animals in a feedback environment.
Aquatic animal effluent (for example fish waste) accumulates in water as a by-product by-product of keeping them in a closed system or tank (for example a recirculating aquaculture system). The effluent-rich water. High in plant nutrients but this is correspondingly toxic to the aquatic animal
plants are grown in a way (for example a hydroponic system) that use them, the nutrient-rich water. The plants take up the nutrients, reducing or eliminating the water toxicity to the aquatic animal.
The water, now sauber the aquatic environment back and the cycle is continued. Aquaponic systems tunnicht discharge or exchange water. The systems are based on the relationship between the aquatic animals and plants, in order to maintain the environment. Water is added only to replace the loss of water due to absorption by the plants, evaporation into the air, or the removal of biomass from the system.
Aquaponic systems vary in size from small indoor units large commercial units. You can use fresh or salt water depending on the type of aquatic animals and plants.
