Research, Instruction & Extension for Producing Crops
With Sustainability, Efficiency & Eco-Friendliness

Aquaponics combines hydroponics and aquaculture to make efficient ways for growing multiple crops, such as fish or shrimp, together with green shoots, such as lettuce or cabbages. Such technology allows coastal farmers, from Louisiana to Phuket and Luzon, to grow multiple, sustainable crops. International aquaponics expert and University of Arizona Professor Kevin Fitzsimmons discusses what aquaponics is, where it came from, and how aquaponics, among other controlled environments methods, can make a difference in feeding this hungry planet.
