DESCRIPTION

Aquaponic Tips and Tricks - An Introduction http://mybookmarklet.com/Aquaponics-Store Aquaponics, is a food production system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In normal aquaculture, excretions from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity. In an aquaponic system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by nitrification bacteria into nitrates and nitrites, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients. The water is then recirculated back to the aquaculture system. Aquaponic Tips and Tricks - An Introduction http://mybookmarklet.com/Aquaponics-Store
