Aquaponics is a combination of aquaculture and hydroponics in which the waste produced by farmed fish or other aquatic animals supply nutrients for plant growth, which in turn purifies the water. This worldwide phenomenon helps communities and households lead a nutritional lifestyle that is self-sufficient, sustainable and healthy. Join the green revolution today!
Aquaponics has become a reliable source of sustainable food in such 'dry' countries as Egypt and Israel.
Aquaponics, is a food production system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In normal aquaculture, waste from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity. In an aquaponic system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic growbed where the waste by-products such as ammonia and urea are broken down by nitrification bacteria into nitrates and nitrites, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients. The now purified water is then fed back to the aquaculture system. As existing hydroponic & aquaculture farming techniques form the basis for all aquaponics systems, the size, complexity, and types of foods grown in an aquaponics system can vary as much as any system found in either distinct farming discipline
Our philosophy at Koialami is to provide a rewarding fresh water pond experience. To that end we also offer our customers an opportunity to experience aquaponics for themselves and we stock all the items you might need to set up your own aquaponics system at home including the tanks, grow-beds, bio-media, pumps, plants and fish (Tilapia rendalli, Tilapia sparrmanii and Oreochromis mossambicus).
