From Aquaculture (water hog) to Aquaponics (water recycling) for Food Production

One of the main reasons for adding plants to an existing aquaculture system is to conserve water. The amount of water used in factory aquaculture is enormous. We are entering a time of severe water shortages as populations soar and cities are competing with farmers for water.

One of the main reasons for changing over from conventional tillage farming to aquaponics is water usage. It is claimed that aquaponics uses only about one tenth the water as tillage farming.

Yes, mixing fish and plants is tricky business but all we have to do is look at nature; for we only invented the word aquaponics, not the process. You can optimize your system to grow plants or fish but if you want to optimize it to do both you will have a challenge on your hands.

Aquaponics Earth has  been contacted by farmers who are cutting down nut trees here in California due to lack of water and wanting to know what they can grow using what little water they are allocated.

Next to food, fresh water will be (and already is) the most valuable commodity on the planet. So, above all other discussions about why to mix growing plants with fish, I believe limited water is the primary reason.

When the founders of Aquaponics Earth came together, they realized they all shared the same life mandate--that mandate is to Teach People How To Be Self Sufficient. They also realized that mandate is what brought them each to discover Aquaponics in the first place. Because it is Aquaponics that has the capability of revitalizing, sustaining and saving the lives of starving people all over the world. Aquaponics turns starving people from victims--begging for their next hand-out from whatever charitable organization or government agency that is in front of them, if any--into people with dignity who are independent and capable of  providing food for themselves.
