What is Aquaponics?
Recycling fish waste to fertilize plants is an ancient technique with roots in early South American and Asian civilizations and can be dated back to 1000 AD.
In modern times, aquaponics emerged from the aquaculture industry as fish farmers explored methods to raise fish while decreasing their dependence on land, water and other resources.
In the 70s, research began on using plants as a natural filter which led to multiple experiments. Subsequently, the first large scale commercial aquaponics facility, Bioshelters in Amherst, MA, was established in mid-1980s, and is still in operation today.
Home-based aquaponics owes its origin in the early 1990s to Tom and Paula Speraneo of S&S Aquafarms in West Plains, MO.
Generally, home-based or smaller systems are not easy to integrate. After years of study, UrbanFarmer is aiming to provide experimental and smaller functional systems to kids which can go into apartments and smaller homes in the urban environment.
