[permaculture] ATTRA:: Aquaponics - Integration of Hydroponics with Aquaculture

The ATTRA publication on Aquaponics has been thoroughly
revised and is back online as a 28-page PDF.

Aquaponics—Integration of Hydroponics with Aquaculture
ATTRA - National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service

The updated ATTRA publication contains a number of
excellent technical resources and design manuals that provide
practical guidelines for implementing aquaponics.

As drought emerges as a major destabilizing factor in agriculture,
keep in mind that water re-use in arid climates and water-limiting
situations is one of the basic premises of aquaponics.

Water is recirculated between fish tanks and hydroponic beds.
The fish effluent serves as a nutrient source for hydroponically-grown
plants and the hydroponic media, plant roots, and microbes function
as a biofilter to cleanse the water before it returns to the fish tank.

Add this to your bookshelf on sustainable food production,
biologically-integrated hydroponics, and integrated aquaculture.
