Growing food is one thing, growing food without dirt while raising fish species for protein, is quite another.

What is Aquaponics?

Aquaponics is an innovative agricultural system that combines aquaculture (raising fish) with hydroponics (growing plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In this closed-loop system, fish waste provides natural fertilization for plants, which in turn clean the water for the fish.

The Origins of Aquaponics

The concept of aquaponics has ancient roots, with early examples such as the Aztec chinampas or "floating gardens," and ancient Chinese and Thai farmers cultivating rice paddies with fish. These ancient civilizations unknowingly laid the foundation for modern aquaponics.

Modern Resurgence and Innovation

In the late 20th century, aquaponics saw a revival as an innovative solution for sustainable agriculture. Researchers and enthusiasts began experimenting with integrated systems, and advances in technology made it practical for both commercial and home use.

Aquaponics and Environmental Sustainability

As the world faces challenges like water scarcity and environmental degradation, aquaponics is gaining attention for its potential to address these issues. By recycling water and nutrients, and reducing the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides, aquaponics offers a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional agriculture.

Benefits of Aquaponics

Save Water and Money Icon

Reduced Water Usage

Aquaponics uses substantially less water than traditional agriculture because water is recycled within the system. The only water loss occurs through evaporation and transpiration from plants.

Energy Efficient

Organic Fertilization

Fish waste provides natural fertilization for the plants. This eliminates the need for artificial fertilizers and creates a self-sustaining ecosystem.

Save Time Icon

Dual Production

Aquaponics allows for the simultaneous production of fish and plants, maximizing the yield from a single system.

Sustainable Protein Source

Raising fish in the system provides a sustainable source of protein, which is particularly valuable in areas with limited resources or where traditional livestock farming is not feasible.

Energy Efficient

Adaptable to Various Environments

Aquaponics systems can be established in diverse environments, including urban areas and regions with poor soil quality, allowing for local food production even in non-traditional agricultural areas.

No Pesticides or Herbicides

Aeroponic systems' soil-less environment minimizes the need for pesticides and herbicides. This results in cost savings and cleaner, healthier crops.



The Eden Grow Tower is already equipped to support aquaponics, but it requires two simple modifications to optimize its functionality for this purpose:

  • The addition of a heater to maintain the water temperature at optimal levels for the fish.

  • An extra filter to handle the increased waste load, ensuring efficient filtration and water quality.

These additions ensure a conducive environment for the fish and efficient filtration for maintaining water quality.

When operating the system in aquaponic mode, it's essential to consider the sustainability and quality of fish food. Choosing a high-quality, sustainable fish food is vital, especially if you intend to consume the fish, as it contributes to their health and, consequently, the nutritional value they offer.

Our Grow Systems with 60-Gallon Reservoirs are for raising aquaculture.
