Raise Fish and Grow Plants at home
Developed in combination with universities and leading horticultural companies, the FishPlant range brings hydroponics, aquaculture and education to your home.
The technique of growing plants and raising fish together and creating a symbiotic relationship is called aquaponics, the combination of aquaculture and hydroponics.
You can raise fish and grow plants in an enclosed ecosystem with benecial microbes providing the bridge that converts the fish waste to usable plant nutrients.
When we feed the fish we are feeding the bacteria and the plants.
How does the FishPlant systems work
The system is based around a plant bed and a fish tank, both working together.
The fish water feeds the plants and the plants filter the water for the fish, all you need to do is feed the fish.
The PlantBed of the FishPlant system is based on the flood & drain hydroponic technique-the flood bringing water and nutrients to the plants roots, the drain drawing fresh air (oxygen) into the root zone.
It is ideal for growing your favourite herbs and salad crops.
The design ensures constant water circulation and helps oxygenate the water for the fish.
What species of fish can I farm?
This depends on whether you intend to eat them or just keep them for pleasure.
While the principle of aquaponics is primarily to grow food, it may be that you prefer to grow ornamental fish such as Koi Carp or Goldfish and just eat the plant produce.
If you want to farm edible varieties then you can successfully and consistenly farm edible varieties such as Tilapia, Carp, Perch and, with practise, even Trout.
Itâs a great system:
The water in the PlantBed rises until it reaches the overflow
2. The water is then siphoned back into the FishTank until the Plantbed is empty and air gets into the siphon.
The PlantBed fills up with water again and repeats the cycle.
FishPlant is finely balanced. As you raise the fish they produce more waste, this provides more food for the plants, the plants grow larger taking up more waste product, cleaning the water for the fish.
Fish and plants grow in tune with each other.
