The mission of Applied Aquaponics is to empower people through the education of food production, nutrition, and cultural integration. The focus is in communities located in regions that are suffering from famine, disease, and malnutrition. We are hoping that through the employment of different aspects of permaculture, crop diversification, conservation, and various forms of biodigestion, we could revolutionize the way that these societies fortify themselves against both economic and ecological adversity.

Aquaponics (pronounced: /?ękw??p?n?ks/) is a sustainable food production system that combines a traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In the aquaculture, effluents accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity for the fish. This water is led to a hydroponic system where the by-products from the aquaculture are filtered out by the plants as vital nutrients, after which the cleansed water is recirculated back to the animals. The term aquaponics is a portmanteau of the terms aquaculture and hydroponic.
Aquaponic systems vary in size from small indoor or outdoor units to large commercial units, using the same technology. The systems usually contain fresh water, but salt water systems are plausible depending on the type of aquatic animal and which plants. Aquaponic science may still be considered to be at an early stage.
This is the official website of Aquaponics Journal. The Aquaponics Journal publishes news, information, and articles about aquaponic technology. The journal is available in printed and electronic forms.
The webpage contains links to different sites that offer videos or updates about aquaculture or aquaponics.
