Aquaponics is a new concept which is combining Aquaculture

(fish farming) and Hydroponics (growing plants without soil) in one

system producing fish and organic vegetables.
The fish waste is treated and then used to fertilize hydroponically
growing plants.
The only inputs are fish fry, fish food, seeds and potting media
Aquaponics offers a method of naturally filtering the fish effluent AQUAPONICS GROW BED MEDIA
by the use of a media-based growing setting (such as expanded
clay = AQUAPONICS GROW BED MEDIA) on the other hand BY Easy Green Division of
supplying the necessary nutrients to the plants roots and at the Ökotau GmbH
same time creating a filter and providing freshly cleansed water to
the cultured fish through recirculation. These nutrients – amongst
others generated from decomposing fish feed – are harmful
substances that would otherwise build up to toxic levels in the fish
tanks but instead serve as fertilizer to hydroponically grown plants.
A media based system is indispensable to allow colonization of
beneficial bacteria which break down the ammonia present in the
fish waste into an applicable shape. Our medium AQUAPONICS
GROW BED MEDIA used within the Hydroponics grow beds will
act as a biofilter stripping off phosphorus, ammonia, nitrite and
nitrate accumulations utilizing associated rhizosphere bacteria
hence the water can then be recirculated back into the fish tanks.
