The project's ultimate goal is to construct an automated aquaponics system that will aid in the implementation of sustainable development goals around the world. Aquaponics systems have received great interest in recent years because of their ability to minimise resource demand while also improving food products, such as vegetables and fish, particularly during Covid-19, when the industry is experiencing difficulties.
Water-based aquaponics is a mix of hydroponics and aquaculture that replicates the natural environment to successfully apply and develop natural cycle understanding within an indoor environment. As a result of this understanding of natural cycles, it was possible to design a system that had capabilities comparable to those of a natural environment but with the added benefit of electrical modifications that increased the system's overall efficiency.
It is discussed in this thesis how the solution was developed, which includes the overall design, prototype, and several sensors that were used to monitor the system, which included fish and plants, how technology was used to provide the best water quality for the fish, and what potential advantages there are to the current market.
