What is Aquaponics?

Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture (farming aquatic species) and hydroponics (soil-less plant culture). 

With an input of fish feed, nitrogen-rich fish wasters are converted by bacteria into nutrients for growing plants that in turn biologically filter the water. Infographic used with permission.
