Aquaponics

Aquaponics is an efficient farming method combining aquaculture (fish-farming) with hydroponics (growing vegetables without soil). A closed water- and nutrient-cycle is created which only requires the addition of fish food and fresh water. aquaponicszykl65dehbf9zx

This way, the use of pesticides of any kind is omitted and the plants need 90% less water compared to traditional agriculture. As the system is running automatically once the biological cycle is established, the low maintenance re
quirement is an added advantage.

Aiming for a low-tech and low-cost construction we teamed up with Aquaponics Deutschland e.V. to plan the system and we built the prototype in Germany. Together we created a modular, thus scalable, system with resources that are affordable and available in our target regions.
