The study and implementation of aquaponic systems has become increasingly popular worldwide over the past several years. Aquaponic systems are re-circulating aquaculture systems that incorporate the production of plants using mineral nutrient solutions. Re-circulating systems are designed to raise large quantities of fish in relatively small volumes of water by treating the water to remove toxic waste products and then reusing it. The process of reusing water accumulates non-toxic nutrients and organic matter. Rather than wasting the metabolic byproducts, they are channeled into secondary crops that have economic value or in some way benefit the primary fish production system. Aquaponic systems are truly integrated systems and offer several advantages.
