More about our Aquaponics: The Green Finned Hippy is an Aquaculture facility like no other. Our aquaponics systems provide the cleanest and healthiest form of filtration for aquaculture.
Aquaponics is the merging of hydroponics and aquaculture. In hydroponics plants are grown in a highly controlled nutrient rich water. Aquaponics uses Fish waste as a form of fertilizer to enrich the plants with nutrients they need to flourish. Aquaponics is a technique used to safely raise fish and vegetables with as little waste as possible. The following illustration will show the cycle.
As you can see with the picture, the fish eat and then produce waste. This waste is then pumped out into a biological filter that houses beneficial bacteria to help break down this waste into a rich fertilizer (Nitrates). The plants then remove this fertilizer from the system. Aquaponics is by no means a new process. Aquaponics has been around for quite awhile, but it has recently grown into a common practice amongst hobbyists and entrepreneurs. This process allows us to grow without commercial fertilizers, with fish food being the only input to the system.
