Aquaponic farm
What is Aquaponics
A small portable aquaponics system
Any system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment.

In an aquaponic system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by nitrifying bacteria initially into nitrites and subsequently into nitrates that are utilized by the plants as nutrients. The water is then recirculated
back to the aquaculture system.
The main benefits of Aquaponics for Hobby Farmers
You use up to 70% less Energy than conventional gardening!
There is no more weeding
The system removes your need for pain-staking and annoying weeding.
You get more freedom and enjoyment!
No more fertilizing or soil cultivation
In fact, the whole process of nutrient delivery to your plants, which is absolutely critical, is almost completely automated. It works without you, that is the key of this system!
No more soil pests
The need for pesticides is eliminated , which makes it that much easier for you to have amazing plants and fruit without toxic chemicals.
It grows most plants twice as fast
Plant experts are shocked when they visit these farms at how fast plants grow. For example... lettuce, which takes 60+ days to mature, takes only about 29 days with this system.

What is Aquaponics?
Aquaponics is technique that blends growing fish and vegetables This closed-loop system is highly efficient, yields more food than traditional farming and has no waste. Aquaponics is super sustainable and highly efficient because of the healthy symbiotic relationships that the plants, fish and nitrogen-fixing bacteria have with one another. As fish excrete into the water, the water is then pumped up to the plant beds. Here the bacteria help break down the fish excrement so the plants can absorb it. The water is naturally cleaned and returned to the fish tank. As a result, plants typically grow in half the time and a jam packed with nutrients that out perform most organic farms.
    How is it different from hydroponics?
    Hydroponics is the process of growing plants in a soilless medium where nutrients are added to the water for the plants to absorb. Over time, the water quality will decline and will require it to be discharged. If the water is not properly disposed of, potential contamination of streams and other water sources can occur.Aquaponics incorporates fish to provide the natural fertilizers and nutrients plants need. This simple addition, eliminates the need to add "food" for plants. Best of all, aquaponics has a built in self cleaning and filtration system that returns clean water to the fish. The only water you will be adding is to replace what the plants take up and from evaporation. There is never a need to discharge your water.
    Why is aquaponics the best way to grow food?
    In addition to having continuous access to fresh, healthy, organic and GMO - free produce, , you also have the added benefit of protein from fish.
    Food grows in half the time of traditional farming and you can grow year round.
      What can you grow in aquaponics?
      Lettuces, kales, chards, zucchini, cucumber, tomatoes, peppers, jalapenos, peas, green onion and asparagus
      Rosemary, thyme, oregon, cilantro, sage, chives, basil
      Lemons, blueberry, raspberry, strawberries
        What kind of fish are best to partner with in aquaponic systems?
        There are many kinds of fish that serve as helpful partners in an aquaponic system. In Czech farm we are using carps, sturgeons and catfish.
          How expensive are aquaponic systems?
          For Hobby indoor farmers it cost about 400 000 CZK per year
          For Business systém it cost about 18 000 CZK per m2
            What kind of aquaponic system is best for me?
            For everybody it is very different. If you want it to do for fun or for healthy fruit and vegetables or you want to build your own business about aquaponic system.
              What is the most important aspect?
              First thing is, that you need to know what aquaponic system is and how it works.
              The second thing is you need to know that you will work with real fishes and flowers and they need care.
              And the last thing is that you need good relation with nature and fishes.

                It was just a gradual development over the years. Last year was "All You Need Is Love." This year it's "Give Peace a Chance." Remember love. If you want to get peace, you can get it as soon as you like if we all pull together.

                The principal element of Suprematism in painting, as in architecture, is its liberation from all social or materialist tendencies. Through Suprematism, art comes into its pure and unpolluted form.

                We were just building stuff 'cause we thought it was cool. I do remember having these specific conversations with my friends where we thought, you know, someone is gonna build this. Someone is gonna build something that makes it so that people can stay connected with their friends and their family.
