One of the advantages of aquaponics over other growing methods is that the crops can be grown in an indoor setup such as in the basement, garage, spare room, kitchen, or inside the greenhouse. The use of a greenhouse is a practical solution to the many challenges of an outdoor aquaponics setup.
Aquaponics is gaining popularity these days, as many people are turning into sustainable and organic gardening. Imagine being able to grow your own food all year round in a clean, closed system with very little space and maintenance.
A vertical aquaponics system is one aquaponics method that grows plants without soil in columns above a fish tank. This method is popular with aquaponics gardeners because it is a water-efficient and space saving way of gardening and fish raising. Growing vertically also lets the aquaponics gardener grow and produce twice the amount of plants as with the media-based aquaponics system of the same area.
Commercial Aquaponics can be profitable when it is done to a specific scale. Start-up cost can be a challenge, but it’s a low maintenance cost and efficient system that provides fresh organic yield much faster than any other farming method, makes it an ideal investment. As with any businesses starting a commercial aquaponics system requires careful and extensive planning, commitment, capable team and business plan to build and operate.
