AQUAPONICS

Aquaponics is a system of aquaculture in which the waste produced by farmed fish or other aquatic animals supplies nutrients for plants grown hydroponically, which in turn purify the water.

 

Systems using Buildex Haydite® are as natural as the ecosystems in lakes, ponds, rivers, and other bodies of water because fish waste is generated and used for nutrients for plants. The plants help purify the water which is recycled into the system and reused.

 

Buildex Haydite is a popular grow media for aquaponic organic produce and CBD growers.
