Aquaponics is a sustainable method of food production that combines fish and vegetables in one integrated, soilless system. When combined with controlled indoor farming, aquaponics can be done in any climate, 365 days a year, and produces 8 times the amount of leafy greens using 1/6th of the water compared to traditional agriculture. The annual production of Clear Flow Aquaponics Systems® from last year alone was equivalent to nearly 1 million heads of leafy greens and over 50,000 pounds of tilapia, all produced using nearly 24,000,000 gallons less water than traditional agriculture.
