Aquaponics is an effective alternative farming technique that drastically benefits the environment. It combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails or fish in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water). In normal aquaculture, poop from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity, but in an aquaponic system, this water feeds the veggies which also clean it at the same time. The toxin-free water can then circulate back to the fish tank and the process can repeat endlessly, eliminating the need to dump the water.
