    • Aquaculture
    • Aqua (latin) - water

    • Constant need to monitor/alter pH, non-sustainable nature of many growing media, and high cost of equipment and maintenance
    • Disposal of tremendous amounts of chemical wastewater
    • Harsh chemicals:
      • Ingestion can result in gastrointestinal distress, with abdominal pain, lethargy, nausea,vomiting, diarrhea, blood chemistry effects, cardiac effects, and central nervous system effects.
  • 19. Aquaponics
    • One process can be used to aid in solving the problems of the other
    • Nitrates that result from fish waste are utilized by the plants, and as long as the plants continue to remove the nitrates from the water to keep the fish healthy, the fish will continue to supply the plants with this food source
