Aquaponics is a food production system that combines a traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment.[1] Aquaponics at Sunflower River is central to our water management, and provides a unifying model for growing food, cleansing greywater, and cycling nutrients through our environment[original research].
