Aquaponics

Aquaponics is no longer at the testing period in Malaysia. In addition to some primary and secondary schools, students have begun to promote this recycling concept that had breed high-quality fish and shrimps and fresh delicious vegetables, there are also "experts" that had their hands on it.



In 2016, "Urban Farmers" of the Netherlands used Philips waste plant in Hague to build a rooftop greenhouse flower garden, while fish farming was on the 6th floor. "Farmed Here" an organic farm certified by The US Department of Agriculture's is also known as the World's Largest Aquaponics Farm." Of course, Aquaponics Farm from Japan, Taiwan, and other region are increasing, how about Malaysia?
 
If we read some news reports from Hong Kong and Taiwan, you may be curious that if locals are implementing similar projects. Of course, Malaysia does exist such a group of folk experts, they not only "
Catfish" a wide variety of Aquaponics system, but also had run it for a few years!

People of 60s, 70s and even from the 80s, had you ever experience the 
memory of your grandfather or grandmother collecting "children pee" to irrigate their plants? As for "Aquaponics", it actually works with the same theory, that is providing ammonia to the plants but in a more advanced and hygienic way.
 
"Inside of an Aquaponics system, water from an aquaculture system will be supplied to the plant watering system. Among the water, the by-product inside will be broken down by the Nitrifying Bacteria to Nitrite and Nitrate and be absorbed by plants as nutrients. After this, the water can be recycled back to the Aquaculture system.
 
The nutrients would be more than enough for the plants in the aquaponics system, so additional 
fertilizing or spraying pesticides would not be required.

What is Aquaponics?

 
Aquaponics is a combination of Aquaculture and Hydroponics that group together to form a mutual benefit ecosystem.
 
Simply said, it could combine the impurities of the microorganisms in the water and waste of the aquatic animals to be broken down and filtered by microorganisms to get ammonia and other elements to provide to the plants growing in the 
grow bed, at the same time, the plants roots will purify the water to be recycled as new aquaculture water providing to the aquatic animals.
 
Even though the theory of the aquaponics may be the same, but its structure could be different depending on, being all the same but at the same time different.

The benefits of Aquaponics
 
The combination of "fishery farming" and "hydroponic cultivation" has the potential to dismiss the disadvantages when the two system runs independently, and it replaces chemical nutrient 
solution with Nutrient rich fish waste to supply plant growth, So that the toxic waste water could turn into plant's nutrients through nature’s microorganisms, after absorbed the plants roots, turn into clean water back to the fish ponds, forming a symbiotic relationship of "fish helping plants, plants helping fish”. The roots of the plants play the role of filtering and purifying the water in the aquaculture troughs to avoid deterioration of the water quality. Therefore, the water in these aquaculture troughs can be recycled indefinitely, except for parts that are reduced by evaporation or needed for plant growth.
Because plants in different growth stages require different amounts of minerals and nutrients, plant growth gains are used at the same time. This will ensure the ecological balance of the Aquaponics system.
