simpliest-home-aquaponicsAquaponics is a “futuristic” approach to agriculture. Rather then using soil to grow fruits and vegetables as with traditional horticulture, in aquaponic food production, you only need fish and water to produce healthy and organic food that you can eat every day of the year.
