Learn about Aquaponics at RAStech 2019. Seats are almost sold out so register now!

Aquaponic systems are becoming increasingly popular, and more farms are finding innovative ways to produce more than one crop in their RAS. Aquaponics is a recirculating aquaculture system that incorporates the production of plants without soil. In typical recirculating aquaculture systems, the goal is to produce large quantities of aquatic biomass in small amounts of space and small volumes of water. In such a system, waste products can accumulate if not physically removed or otherwise filtered via mechanical or biological means. The organic buildup and metabolic by-products can be re-used in an aquaponic system by a secondary crop: plants.
