What is Aquaponics?

Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture and hydroponics to make the perfect enviroment for plants to grow in a nutrient rich soilless environment fertilized by fish.  The plants in turn purify the water for the fish.  The 3rd component is the very beneficial bacteria that breakdown the fish waste into components the plants can uptake.  See the video below for a more indepth explanation by Rebecca Nelson of Nelson & Pade, leading researchers in the industry.
