Aquaponics is a very important system that turns waste from fish and a variety of other aquatic animals into food for hydroponic plants.First, the fish produce waste. Fish waste contains ammonia, which is a source of nitrogen for plants. Ammonia boosts plant growth as well as seed production and is also a key component of photosynthesis. After the ammonia enters the system filter, the system’s bacteria break it down. Then these bacteria convert the ammonia into nitrites and eventually nitrates. Finally, nitrates are able to make their way through the filter and down into the roots of the crop to feed it.
