Aquaponics is the process of growing fruits, vegetables and fish for food using the fish water to supply the nutrients needed to grow nutritious food safely at the same time. The grow sites filter and clean the water for the fish to have a clean habitat to thrive in.

One fish. Two fish. Red fish. 350 blue fish.
At least that’s how it goes for one of city’s first aquaponic farming systems, anyway.
About 350 blue catfish were brought to a small plot of land next to the Food Bank of Corpus Christi to make the system operational on Wednesday.
Longtime friends and experienced growers Casey Williams and Lawrence Palreiro said the fish, which were bought from Herrmann’s Fish Farm in Robstown, are one part of their new aquaponics venture, which was built by mostly recycled materials on the food bank property.
Aquaponics refers to any system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In normal aquaculture, excretions from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity. In an aquaponic system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by nitrification bacteria into nitrates and nitrites, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients. The water is then recirculated back to the aquaculture system.
As existing hydroponic and aquaculture farming techniques form the basis for all aquaponics systems, the size, complexity, and types of foods grown in an aquaponics system can vary as much as any system found in either distinct farming discipline.
