Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture (fish) and hydroponic cultivation of plants without soil. Aquaculture and hydroponics are both multi-billion dollar industries, but the combination of the two has remained unexplored commercially. Until now. Our technology is the secret sauce that brings together aquaculture and hydroponics into a closed loop aquaponics system, so we can grow food anywhere. And that means food production can move from the fields into the heart of the city.
