VT AREC Aquaponics

Virginia Sea Grant extension partner Virginia Tech's Virginia Seafood and Agriculture Research Center works on aquaponic research on May 24, 2019.

Aquaponics is a farming system where plants and fish live together, creating a mutually beneficial environment. The farmed fish's waste supplies nutrients for the plants or crop grown hydroponically, with its roots suspended in the water.
