research and development

Aquaponics is the integration of aquaculture and hydroponics, a soilless system for crop production. The idea of aquaponics was first studied in the mid 1970’s as a way to remove waste products from recirculating aquaculture systems.

As the technology advanced, it was discovered that in a controlled environment it was possible to create a symbiotic relationship between plants and fish, where both parties could thrive.

Alternative Farming Solutions recognizes the potential of this technology, and how it could serve as a very viable solution to many of the obstacles facing food production today. We are ready.
