Aquaponics is a revolutionary system for growing plants by fertilizing them with the waste water from fish in a sustainable closed system. A combination of aquaculture and hydroponics, aquaponic gardening is an amazingly productive way to grow organic vegetables, greens, herbs, and fruits, while providing the added benefits of fresh fish as a safe, healthy source of protein. On a larger scale, it is a key solution to mitigating food insecurity, climate change, groundwater pollution, and the impacts of overfishing on our oceans.Aquaponic Gardening is the definitive do-it-yourself home manual, focused on giving you all the tools you need to create your own aquaponic system and enjoy healthy, safe, fresh, and delicious food all year round. Starting with an overview of the theory, benefits, and potential of aquaponics, the book goes on to explain:—System location considerations and hardware components—The living elements—fish, plants, bacteria, and worms—Putting it all together—starting and maintaining a healthy systemAquaponics systems are completely organic. They are four to six times more productive and use ninety percent less water than conventional gardens. Other advantages include no weeds, fewer pests, and no watering, fertilizing, bending, digging, or heavy lifting—in fact, there really is no downside! Anyone interested in taking the next step towards self-sufficiency will be fascinated by this practical, accessible, and well-illustrated guide.Sylvia Bernstein is the president and founder of The Aquaponic Source. An internationally recognized expert on aquaponic gardening, Sylvia speaks, writes, and blogs extensively about this revolutionary technique.

Vier Fische

Genre: Nature

Der preisgekrönte Autor und passionierte Angler Paul Greenberg nimmt uns mit auf eine Reise über die Flüsse und Meere dieser Welt und erzählt die Geschichte jener vier Fischarten, die mittlerweile überall die Speisekarten beherrschen: Lachs, Barsch, Kabeljau und Thunfisch. Er besucht norwegische Großfarmen, die jährlich 500 000 Tonnen Lachs produzieren - mit Hilfe genetischer Techniken, die ursprünglich bei der Schafzucht zum Einsatz kamen. In Alaska besichtigt er die einzige Fair-Trade-Fischerei der Welt. Er erklärt, warum die Meerestiere zunehmend mit Quecksilber und anderen Schadstoffen belastet sind, und schildert, wie der Mittelmeerbarsch zu einer global nachgefragten Ware werden konnte. Greenberg stellt viele der Fragen, die immer mehr Menschen beim Anblick einer Speisekarte oder der Tiefkühltruhe unseres Supermarkts beschäftigen: Was ist der Unterschied zwischen Wild-, Zucht- und Biofisch? Welchen Fisch können wir bedenkenlos essen? Was bedeutet Überfischung eigentlich? Lassen sich Fische wirklich domestizieren wie andere Tiere auch, oder sollten wir generell aufhören, Fisch zu essen? Fische, so Greenbergs Fazit, sind unser letztes wirklich ?wildes Nahrungsmittel. Womöglich nicht mehr lange. Nur wenn wir besser verstehen, unter welchen Bedingungen und um welchen Preis Fisch auf unseren Tellern landet, werden wir dem Lebensraum - und der Nahrungsquelle - Meer mit neuer, dringend gebotener Achtung begegnen.

What is aquaponic gardening, one may want to ask? Well, Aquaponic gardening is the combination of aquaculture (fish farming) with hydroponics (growing of plants with water in gravel, liquid or sand without the use of soil). The fish and the plants work together in a system that constantly recycles its own water. They have a symbiotic relationship. The plants use the effluents produced by fish as food. In return, the plants purify water for the aquatic animals. Aquaponic gardening has become a growing trend over the last ten years as it helps to allow families to create a sustainable environment. This form of gardening was born out of necessity for some challenges based on issues with traditional soil centered gardening that requires more space and energy. Anyway, get a copy of this book now and get all the details on how you can start taking the benefits of setting up one for yourself and grow your own vegetables and fish farming if you like!

Two Percent Solutions for the Planet

Genre: Environmental protection

Two Percent Solutions for the Planet profiles fifty innovative practices that soak up carbon dioxide in soils, reduce energy use, sustainably intensify food production, and increase water quality. The “two percent” refers to: the amount of new carbon in the soil needed to reap a wide variety of ecological and economic benefits; the percentage of the nation’s population who are farmers and ranchers; and the low financial cost (in terms of GDP) needed to get this work done. As White explained in Grass, Soil, Hope, a highly efficient carbon cycle captures, stores, releases, and recaptures biochemical energy, mitigating climate change, increasing water storage capacities in soil, and making green plants grow. Best of all, we don’t have to invent anything new—a wide variety of innovative ideas and methods that put carbon back into the soil have been field-tested and proven to be practical and profitable. They’re mostly low-tech, too, relying on natural resources such as sunlight, green plants, animals, compost, beavers, creeks, and more. In Two Percent Solutions for the Planet, White expands what he calls the “regenerative toolbox,” to include holistic grazing, edible forests, biochar, weed-eating livestock, food co-ops, keyline plowing, restoration agriculture, bioenergy, aquaponics, animal power, Farm Hack, bees, bears, wildlife corridors, rainwater harvesting, native seeds, and various other projects from across the United States, as well as in Canada, Europe, and Australia. These short, engaging success stories will help readers connect the dots between diverse, exciting, and pragmatic practices, and inspire them to dig deeper into each individual story and concept, energized by the news that solutions abound.

Aquaponik ist eine Kombination der Fisch- (Aquakultur) und Pflanzenzucht (Hydroponik). Vereinfacht gesagt wird das Wasser aus einem Fischtank auf die per Hydrokultur betriebenen Pflanzenbeete gepumpt. Das Wasser enthält Ausscheidungen der Fische. In der Hydrokultur lebende Bakterien säubern das belastete Fischwasser. Die umgewandelten Nährstoffe sind danach für das Wachstum der Pflanzen gut verfügbar. Das Wasser fließt vom Pflanzenbeet wieder zurück in den Fischtank, wo der Kreislauf von vorne beginnt. Ich zeige, wie einfach man einen solchen Kreislauf im Eigenbau im eigenen Garten aufbauen kann. Praktische Ausführungen sowie Tipps sind gleichermaßen Anleitung als auch Anregung.

Genre: Technology & Engineering

Aquaponic farming—raising fish and vegetables together commercially—is the most promising innovation for a sustainable, profitable, localized food system. Until now, systems have largely focused on warm-water fish such as tilapia. A lack of reliable information for raising fish and vegetables in the cool climates of North America and Europe has been a major stumbling block. The Aquaponic Farmer is the game changer. Built around a proven 120-foot greenhouse system operable by one person, the book distills vast experience and complete step-by- step guidance for starting and running a cold-water aquaponics business. Coverage includes: • A primer on cold-water aquaponics • Pros and cons of different systems • Complete design and construction of a Deep Water Culture system • Recommended and optional equipment and tools • System management, standard operating procedures, and maintenance checklists • Maximizing fish and veg production • Strategies for successful sales and marketing of fish and plants As the only comprehensive commercial cold-water resource, The Aquaponic Farmer is essential for farmers contemplating the aquaponics market, aquaponics gardeners looking to go commercial, and anyone focused on high quality food production. Adrian Southern is steeped in all things aquaponic. After years of urban farming and system perfection, he co-founded Raincoast Aquaponics and raises trout and vegetables for a living in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island, BC. Whelm King is a business manager, project manager, and entrepreneur who has worked in the arts, agriculture, publishing, media, and law.
