“Aquaponics is a method of food production in which aquaculture and hydroponics is mixed together to create a symbiotic ecosystem. This system is harnessed to grow plants and fish with the help of nitrification using bacteria to provide the necessary nutrients. The plants in the hydroponic growth beds feed on the nutrient rich waste water from fish. Filtering beds remove fish affluent, algae, leftover fish feed and help recycle fresh water in to the fish tanks. Plants convert the carbon dioxide into oxygen, hence acting as natural water aeration systems. Aquaponics has been practiced as a sustainable form of agriculture for a very long time in history, dating back to the Aztecs. This form is currently making a huge comeback with many farmers, households and communities trying to implement it in their backyards or in their farms.

Inherently, aquaponics requires minimal labour, is sustainable, cost-effective and organic. This is the main reason for the resurgence in aquaponics farming and the launch of companies which are selling ready-made starter kits to those which are offering consultancy services, custom solutions, equipment and so on. Tilapia, silver perch, barramundi, jade perch and murray cod are some of the fish which are generally grown along with most green leafy vegetables, beans, peas, radishes, onions, strawberries and herbs. Aquaponics as an industry has a potential market size of around $270m in 2014 and is estimated to grow at double digit growth rate in the forecast period 2015-2020.
