The Amazing Aquaponics

Pick, Wipe and Eat is that even possible? the answer is YES!

These fruits and vegetables were grown through #Aquaponics, the process of combining aquaculture, which is growing aquatic animals such as fish, crayfish, snails or prawns in tanks and hydropinics which is growing plants without soil.

I know you're confused and still asking how is that even possible?, so here: the nutrient-rich water from raising fish provides a natural fertilizer for the plants, when I say "natural fertilizer" I mean their poop and the plants help to purify the water for the fish. So there, it's  one of the best collaboration between aquaculture and gardening.

We're enjoying the fresh cherry tomatoes.

I think aquaponics is one of the best way to sustainably raise fresh fish, fruits and vegetables. This can also be an alternative way to feed your family healthy food and to generate extra money or profit.
