Tilapia are typically the fish of choice for these types of systems only because they can reach a marketable size in as few as five months and are reproductive as early as 12 weeks under optimal conditions. Tilapia are a warm water fish in that they prefer temperatures between 82-90 degrees for optimal growth, this is their primary disadvantage in many areas due to extreme weather conditions during the winter months. But tanks may be insulated and covered as long as there is sufficient oxygenation of the water to keep them healthy and active. Tilapia will often eat practically anything! Read More →

Aquatic System Information Basics

What is Aquaponics system? It is an amazing kind of food production system that is a combination of two sub systems: the hydroponics (growing plants in water) and the aquaponics (raising the aquatic animal like crayfish, prawns or fish). To establish this great system, three components are required 1. Aquatic animal such as crayfish, prawns or fish 2. Bacteria 3. plants Fish waste is processed by the bacteria and it is changed into nitrate that is an essential nutrient for plant growth. Plants absorb the necessary nutrient from water and water is cleansed. This oxygenated water is returned back in Read More →
