Aquaponics is a mashup of hydroponics and aquaculture
Aquaponics is a mashup of hydroponics and aquaculture. It is the practice of using fish wastewater as fertiliser for plants, whose roots filter the water, cleaning it sufficiently to be returned to the fish. Charlie Price from the social enterprise Aquaponics UK, explores the role aquaponics can play in the future of our collective food supply. He 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.
