Can Commercial Aquaponics be Profitable?

Can Commercial Aquaponics be Profitable? | Aquaponics Junkies | Scoop.it

The number of aquaponics facilities have been increasing recently, and yet the economics of aquaponics is still very much an unproven element.... the only real figures currently show that most farms either fail, or are still unprofitable, perhaps surviving only by grants, donations or sideline businesses.

 

This does not mean that we should give up! Aquaponics is still largely in its infancy, and like any new industry it takes time to perfect techniques, for costs to come down, for innovation to increase efficiencies, and for the market to catch up to eating the healthiest food available!

 

This article is about an aquaponics farm in Hawaii, and also talks a little of the challenges facing them, and the industry in general in Hawaii.

What is Aquaponics?

What is Aquaponics? | Aquaponics Junkies | Scoop.it

Aquaponics

A sustainable food production system that combines a traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In aquaculture, effluents accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity for the fish. This water is led to a hydroponic system where the by-products from the aquaculture are filtered out by the plants as vital nutrients, after which the cleansed water is recirculated back to the animals. The term aquaponics is a portmanteau of the terms aquaculture and hydroponic.
