Aquaponics

Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture (fish farming) and hydroponics. Aquaponics is an excellent way to grow fruit, vegetables, and crops on a small amount of land with a limited amount of water. Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) are farmed, and crops such as Swiss chard and tomatoes are grown.
