Aquaponics systems closely mimic nature in the way they handle and provide nutrients for the plants.
The primary source of plant nutrient in an Aquaponics system is the fish food. The beautiful thing is that the fish food is one source of nutrient for the plants and the fish, a very important principle in working towards sustainability.
The job of the two main beneficial bacteria in converting the ammonia produced by the fish to nitrates is very obvious.
Natural Fish Diets
Why less commecial pellet? Commercial pellets are made from by-catch and the making and using of them is destroying the ocean fisheries, which is seen as ecological vandalism and unsustainable.
