The Aquaponics ebook will give you a great understanding of how to start your own aquaponics production.  This  65 page ebook provides you with enough information to start your own home production and even manage issues as they arise. This is a sustainable way to become more self-sufficient and grow your own food.

Aquaponics involves growing fish, crustaceans or something else in water; and then taking that water and using it to grow plants. It is an intensive way of producing food, that can be used on a small scale at home, or on a large scale for commercial farming.

The level of sophistication involved in aquaponics can vary from low to high. The biggest challenge is to ensure that when the same water is used to grow two different things, the characteristics of the water needs to be compatible for both.
