Aquaponics is the science of fish and plants in a recirculating ecosystem.
The fish provide nutrients for the plants, and plants help to clean the water for the fish.
Why is Aquaponics Important?
Aquaponics is a vitally important way for us to grow food now and for our future generations
Aquaponics can grow a tremendous amount of food with a fraction of the water that is normally used in soil based agriculture
Food can be grown directly in our communities, providing access to nutritious food, creating jobs and eliminating the huge carbon footprint associated with food transportation miles, and wasteage
Aquaponics and Education
Aquaponics is the perfect teaching tool for core subjects like Math, Biology, Chemistry, Nutrition and Engineering
Students can study fish, plants and bacteria interacting in a living ecosystem
Students can perform water quality tests and measure growth rates in fish and plants
Economics, Marketing and Nutrition are among the many other areas of study connected with Aquaponics
Perfect for primary school students grades 3-6, to learn about plants and marine life
Perfect for high school students studying Biology, Science and Nutrition years 7-12
Teaching Tools for Educators
Aquaponic systems are a wonderful way to inspire students and engage them in core subjects and concepts. Australian tools and teaching resource kits are readily available.
Aquaponic System for your Classroom
The Aquasprout Systems is the best way to teach aquaponics right in your classroom, science lab or homeroom.
Set Up & Training
We also offer installation and training services where one of our instructors will visit your school, setup your system and provide your teachers and students an aquaponics class!
