from fish to fork!
Granary Road and Lethbridge College, one of the leading academic institutions of aquaponic research in North America, have collaborated in creating this state-of-the-art facility.
Aquaponics is the integrated culture of fish, plants and beneficial microorganisms grown in a soilless environment. Fish and plants grow in one ecosystem, eliminating the waste they separately produce by turning it into something of use.
> The waste created by the fish becomes a food source for beneficial microorganisms
> The microorganisms convert the fish waste into mineral nutrients for the plants.
> The plants act as a natural filter, cleaning the water for the fish.
It’s essentially zero-waste agriculture.
