Aquaponics is the symbiotic relationship between Aquaculture (growing fish in controlled confined space) and Hydroponics (growing plants in water). By using the “dirty” water from the fish tanks in the hydroponic beds the plant roots take up needed nutrients and help filter the water. The water is then returned to the fish tanks clean and ready to start the cycle over again. While this seems very simple, and in a way it is, it is by no means “easy”.  There are many formulas and rules that have to be observed or this very delicate balance can be loss and all will suffer. Here at our facility we use the UVI system that has been proven for nearly 40 years now.
