Aquaponics
vs.
Hydroponics
A presentation by
Steven Colletti
Tilapia
Why are Tilapia extremely popular in aquaponic systems??
•
•
•
•
They are easy to breed.
They are fast growing.
Can withstand very poor water conditions.
Consume an omnivorous diet and are good eating.
Bacteria plays an
important role in
the Nitrogen cycle.
Through a natural
process, the cycle
is broken down as
follows…
• Fish excrete
ammonia.
• Bacteria eats
ammonia and
converts to
nitrite which is
then converted
to nitrate.
• Nitrate happens
to be the
favorite food of
plants.

The Benefits of Aquaponics
• Its cuts down your grow time.
• It can be done anywhere as it does
not rely on “good soil.”
• It produces both meat (fish) and
vegetables.
• Just a small area of 10’ x 20’ can
produce enough food to feed 20-30
people.
Different Types of Aquaponic Systems
How Hydroponics Works
What is Hydroponics?
• Plants are grown without soil
• Water and nutrients supplied through a plant tray
• Conditions are customized based on the needs of the
plant
• In some cases support structures are built to support
the body of the plant
Maintaining a Plants Growth Cycle
• Natural lighting provides energy necessary for photosynthesis
• Minerals, oxygen and water delivered through the root system
• The lack of soil removes insect concerns, eliminating the need
for pesticides
• Plants are carefully supervised so they maintain the ideal level
of growth
No soil is necessary.
It’s stable and produces high yields.
There is no damage from pesticides.
The controlled system means that no nutrition pollution is
released into the environment.
• Lower nutrient requirements due to control over nutrient
levels.
• Lower water requirement as water stays in the system and
can be reused.
