Aquaponics is a combination of aquaculture and hydroponics. The symbiotic relationship between plants and fish replicates natural ecosystems and has been known about and employed by farmers for thousands of years.
The basic idea behind aquaponics is that when fish eat, their waste product is nitrogen rich. Plants growing in the same water and use this nitrogen as fertilizer to grow. So Fish create nutrients for the plants, and the plants filter the water and send it back to the fish.
