Through the combination of aquaculture and hydroponics, aquaponics is a method for growing fish and plants together in a symbiotic system. Through a sustainable and cyclical system, the plants keep the water “clean” for the fish to grow, while the fish fertilize the plants. Both the fish life and plants are interdependent, and with the proper balance each will provide the nutrients and conditions for the other to grow and thrive.

The average citizen of a developed or fast-developing country has an ‘ecological footprint’ so large that if everyone on the planet lived that way we’d need at least three planets to support them! But we only have one lovely planet Earth.
On average, for every human being on the planet, it is as if we had 1.7 planet Earths.
