Aquaponics is aquaculture and hydroponics working together. The fish fertilize the water which is circulated through vegetables which uses the nitrogen from the fish and filters the water, so that it can go back to the fish tank and start the cycle again. We are on track to have our first aquaponic system by the end of this year 2019. The fish will be sold to cover the costs of feed, and the vegetables will be, basically, free of cost. We will only incur a cost for delivering the veggies.
Our Aquaponics program will partner with the local High School and provide educational opportunities to students in the El Rincon community.
