This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to start your own basic aquaponic system in your home.
An aquaponic system basically involves a troika of organisms that live in harmony and support each other. You have the fish that create the ammonia, the bacteria that feed on this ammonia and turn it into nitrites, and the plants which benefit from the nutritious water and can also be converted into fish food and a source of ammonia. You are basically creating a balance and self-sustaining eco-system that can produce everything you and your family need to have a nutritious and balanced diet.
This book offers all the information you, as a beginner, would need in designing your system, choosing the specifications and making sure you get to develop a healthy and thriving environment for all the organisms in your aquaponic system.
This book also offers simple descriptions and definitions of all the working parts and materials that you need for your system as well as customizable fittings you might want to add. With this knowledge, you will be able to design your system according to the available space, budget and climate conditions of your locality, and of course, according to your needs.
Designing and growing a healthy aquaponic system is invaluable in helping you develop food security at low cost. Because it can be developed into a self-sustaining eco-system, you will be able to get maximum output for less input, as well as have the satisfaction of growing your own food. You will also have the added assurance that everything on your plate is organic and healthy.
