Sustainable Aquaponic System of Growing Food Gains Recognition

The aquaponics model is a mutually beneficial system for aquaculture and hydroponic systems. The fish tanks produce nutrient-rich effluent that is used to fertilize hydroponic production beds in vegetable producing houses. The nutrients generated from the fish manure, algae, and decomposing fish feed are contaminants that would otherwise become toxic in the fish tanks; instead, they will become liquid fertilizer for the hydroponically grown plants.
