A study on aquaponics: moving toward a sustainable multi-trophic production of fish and vegetables

Aquaponics represents the bio-integration of hydroponics and aquaculture system, where, fish, microbes and plants grow together and form an eco-friendly aquatic environment. Aquaponics conserve the eco-biodiversity through sustainable nutritional recycling and prevention of waste disposal into the environment. This study provides an overview of this food-growing system, bacteria convert the aquaculture waste (NH3) into accessible nutrients, which are later on used by the growing plants.

At present, food production sectors in the world
are facing problems with water and a suitable
environment. Hence, food production methods need to be
more advanced, which should support sustainability as
well as high culture efficiency in terms of natural resource
utilization. Aquaponics is the most environmentally
friendly and efficient way to fix the issue of food security,
which could easily satisfy the needs of all people and suit
all climates around the world.  

The study is conducted is conducted by Jaspreet Singh, Arpita Narayan, Md Imran Rafique, Kamal Sarma, Tarkeshwar Kumar, Ahirwal SK and Bharti V.
