2011 Milan Design Week Honorable Mention
Aquaponics is a food production system that cultivates both fish and plant harvesting. The designed system offers production, growth, and mobile possibilities in locations that lack the natural resources in a normal terrestrial medium. The basic components of an aquaponics system consists of a three-part continuous cycle. The plants grow by utilizing the microbe nutrients from fish excretions. The water is filtered through the gravel plant basin allowing the fish to benefit by receiving clean filtered water.
