Aquaponics creates an abundance of natural life, which generates a healthy, organic ecosystem in which plants and fish thrive.
Plants consume light energy, water and C02 along with nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus to produce seeds, flowers and fruits.
Animals and insects eat these seeds, fruits and flowers for energy and leave behind excess water, carbon and other organics, which we call waste.
Bacteria and other microbes eat this waste and break it down into accessible molecules (fertilizer) like nitrate (nitrogen) and phosphorus. During this process C02 is also generated.
These accessible molecules are again consumed by plants and the natural re-cycling of nature is complete and an ecosystem emerges.
Coho salmon are fed and generate waste in tanks.
Microbes (bacteria) convert waste in water to fertilizer and C02.
Water is pumped to plant beds where plants receive the fertilizer. Air is exchanged to allow plants to absorb the excess C02.
Clean water is captured through transpiration of the plants allowing Habitat to reuse over 99% of the water in its ecosystem.
Can we see some ID, please?
