Drought, Warming Climates Increase Feasibility of Aquaponic Food Systems Reports Water Advocate

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) January 16, 2015

Interest in Aquaponics, a food production system in which plants are grown in fresh water and obtain nutrition from waste material produced by fish living in the water, is rapidly increasing. The reason, according to aquaponics pioneer Charles Shultz, is that aquaponics produces both meat and vegetables using an all-natural self contained system requiring little outside water or fertilizers. Recent widespread drought and fresh water shortages have motivated many food producers to look more closely at the potential of aquaponics.
