A water savvy system that could help remote communities.
Aquaponics as such, has a great potential to be used in developing nations - not only as a commercial venture but as a mean to produce food for the population of these countries.
Aquaculture advocates also say it is sustainable and Eco-friendly. Water is a precious commodity in developing nations, and because the majority of the water used is recycled through the aquaponics system, significantly less water is consumed than in traditional agriculture. The possibilities are limitless
It could improve people in developing countries’ lives by increasing food security, employment opportunities and economic growth.
As nutrition is a key issue for developing nations, relying mainly on staple crops such as wheat and rice, the farmed fish could also provide a valuable source of protein. By building aquaponics systems in developing nations, there would be more food for the population, and it would be more nourishing as well as economically viable.
