Feeding Communities Through Aquaponics

ÉAU to develop vertical aquaponic farms that produce vegetables, fruits and fish all year round, regardless of weather conditions. Aquaponics is a closed-circuit food production system that creates a symbiosis between fish farming and hydroponics. This technology uses nutrient-rich water from fish farms to feed plants that extract the required minerals and nutrients for good growth while filtering water with their root systems. Once done, pure water can then be returned to the fish ponds.
