Management of the Aquaponic Systems

Summary

Aquaponics is the integration of recirculating aquaculture and hydroponics in one production system. Although the production of fish and vegetables is the most visible output of aquaponic units, it is essential to understand that aquaponics is the management of a complete ecosystem that includes three major groups of organisms: fish, plants and bacteria. This document provides recommendations on how to keep a balanced system through the proper management of these three organisms. It also lists all the important management phases from starting a unit to production management over an entire growing season.
