Bringing food production home with backyard aquaponics

Think you can grow plants by fertilizing them with waste water from fish in a
sustainable closed system? Yes you can! Aquaponics works by mixing water with
waste from a fish tank. A tank filters the nutrient rich water to feed plants. The grow
beds for the plants in turn culture bacteria to prorduce ammonia, which then breaks
down into nitrates. The nitrates break down into aerated, clean water, which then
gets cycled back to the fish and the process continues.
