_aquaponics: how it works ecosystem that produces organic fooda sustainable food production system that combines traditionalaquaculture with hydroponics in a symbiotic environment minimal water consumption: less than 1-2% of the water than traditional farming or virtually 0% percent with rain water harvesting low energy: uses 70% less energy than farming using in-ground methods efficiency of producuction: five to twenty times more vegetables than farming in the same area of soil ecosystem that produces organic food best energy conversion: fish are the most efficient converters of protein in terms of farming live-stock fully scalable: family systems to full commercial systems pure, clean, organic food produced on-site easy to learn operate and maintain: educational instrument for the next generation
