Abstract:

Aquaculture being the important source of global animal protein, is the potential food production sector. The ever increasing population worldwide, urbanization, human activities, environmental degradation, social and economic problems drive the need for new, innovative and improved solutions for food production. One pioneering approach that promises to address these problems is Aquaponics. Aquaponics is the integration of recirculatory aquaculture system and hydroponics in one production system. An aquaponic system is established at Fisheries Research Station, Sri Venkateswara Veterinary University, Undi, Bhimavaram, West Godavari district, Andhra Pradesh, India. The future purpose of our study is finding an optimized solution for the Aquaponics systems to produce qualitative (organic) and quantitative food with low production cost, conservation of water efficiently and eco-friendly. This study has covered the designs, theoretical and practical concepts of Aquaponics, ideal conditions, management strategies, compatible aquacultural and horticultural varieties and concept of balancing the unit. This publication will be a supplemental hand out for outreach, extension, education and further research.


Keywords: Aquaponics, hydroponics, re-circulatory aquaculture system, fish, vegetables
