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.
