LivinGreen Aquaponics: back to the future of food production


Aquaponics is the combination of an aquaculture system and hydroponics.

In aquaponics, one grows plants and fish together in an integrated system. The fish wastes provide a food source for the growing plants and the plants roots provide a natural filter for the water the fish live in. This can create a sustainable ecosystem where both plants and fish can thrive.

Aquaponics can be one answer to a growing need of fresh, healthy and tasty fish & vegetables grown in anyone's backyard or balcony. In addition, in small to medium scale operations Aquaponics  provides a solution to fish farmers  dealing with the issue of disposing nutrient rich water, as well as a hydroponic growers need for nutrient rich water.

an Aquaponic system provides 2 nutritious, clean food crops on one body of water.
