WHAT IS AQUAPONICS?

Aquaponics is the method of combining aquaculture and hydroponics to grow both fish and vegetables in a recirculating environment. With more emphasis being placed on sustainable practices, aquaponics is a great way of producing healthy food with significantly less water usage and without the need for artificial fertilisers.

Aquaponics, how does it work and how can we benefit from more Aquaponic Systems?

Here you can listen to Charlie Price talk about Aquaponics from all angles. Charlie Price from the Social Enterprise Aquaponics UK, explores the role aquaponics can play in the future of our collective food supply.

Charlie provides an insight into both the applications for aquaponics but more specifically a new approach to urban agriculture, turning wastes into resources and transforming disused urban spaces to provide not only food, but resilient communities.
