A study by S. Mallick, H. Easmin and I. Hussain with the Assam Agricultural University, compiles the need and technical understanding of self-sustenance and viability of aquaponics.
Aquaponics is a combination technique; set to make a change in the plants and aquatic products. The recycling of nutrients is critical and a necessary component of the system.
This soilless farming enables fish waste to supply of nutrient components to farmed plants via bio-filtration. Encouraging saving of water and thus allowing for its periodic treatment and recirculation. Supportively, plants act as a natural alternative to another filter in the system. Modern aquaponics from multi-dimensional methods of agriculture provide a sustainable measure of food production with higher efficacy.
