PASES Aqua provides Aquaponics design consultations for residential and commercial clients, to ensure the design is viable, practical and environmentally sustainable.
Aquaponics integrates the disciplines of both aquaculture and hydroponics to grow fish and plants symbiotically within an artificially built system. The advantage is you save water and reduce the need to add fertilizers or chemicals. The most common system uses a main tank to grow edible fish species. The water from this tank is pumped into a smaller tank (or grow bed) above, which contains vegetables overlaid by medium-sized clay media. An outlet on the bottom of the top tank allows percolation of the water through filter media (via gravity) to the bottom tank. In the process, waste excreted from fish provides nutrients for vegetables to grow. The fish benefit from filtered, nutrient-free clean water.
PASES Aqua can offer small-scale residential design services, commercial farm design service, pre purchase inspections and evaluations, and production forecasts.
