Aquaponic is the combination of aquaculture and hydroponics. Aquaculture is growing fishes and other marine organism and hydroponics is growing saplings, plants and vegetable without the help of soil.

Basically, aquaponics makes the fish to work and plants get benefitted by the fish. In simple words, fish eat and produces waste which is secreted in the water and the wastes created by the fish is the most important nutrient required for the plants. The plants absorb the wastes produced by the fish and the plant also start to grow in a healthy way. In this way there will be a cycle between the fish and plants. Ultimately the one who get benefitted is not the fish nor the plant, humans are getting benefitted as they grow both fishes and plants and selling in an appropriate price.
