Is aquaponics a sneak peek into the future of sustainable agriculture?

What is aquaponics?
Aquaponics is one of many ways to source organic food. The method combines aquaculture which is basically fish farming and hydroponics which means growing plants without soil. Together, you get ‘aquaponics’. This method of growing food is far more environmentally friendly compared to the modern model of growing food on large plots of land, using tremendous amounts of water and pesticides. Aquaponics requires little land, water, energy and absolutely zero pesticides. So, is this model potentially the future of sustainable agriculture?
