Integrated Synergistic Aqua Farming

Closed Containment Aquaculture With Plant Crop Farming 

Closed system aquaculture (CSA) is already providing better ways to farm fish. This involves barrier technologies that ensure no contact between wild and farmed fish, thus eliminating the most negative impacts of fish farming and significantly reducing others. Recent large scale developments have also led to better overall economics.

Adding systems to convert natural waste products (fish manure) into fresh wholesome plant crops available year round could further increase value and returns. This process is known as Aquaponics.

Although similar in some ways to the practice of “Hydroponics” production, there are some very important differences that make an Aquaponic vegetable far superior to a Hydroponic vegetable. Modern Contained Aquaculture could possibly be the answer to many of the food concerns for the consuming public and can be further enhanced through the adaptation of Aquaponics.
