Aquaponics is a very good way of producing 100% healthy, tasty and sustainable food at home. It is a branch of permaculture and can be integrated with a classic garden to boost the production of the whole system. Aquaponics consist of producing crop in poly-culture which means that the crops are grown in an ecosystem. The 3 evident groups of leaving creatures in an ecosystem are the fish, the plants and the bacteria. The fish are fed and reject some nitrogen into the water under the form of Ammonia. The ammonia is then transformed by some bacteria into nitrite and then nitrate. The nitrate are consumed by the plants. By growing, the plants purify the water returned to the fish. This ecosystem is actually more complex as it evolve a multitude of other animals such as worms, insects, birds… that will help to break down the organic matters generated and offer a very wide range of nutrients to the plants.
