The aquaponic system design channels nutrient-rich water from the fish culture system through plant beds in direct contact with the roots to effectively feed the plants. In turn, nitrogenous waste is removed through uptake by the plants for growth. Thus, the water is effectively cleaned and ready for reuse in fish culture.
