Practical Application of Aquaponics System and Benefits Sharing From Director For Research Facility

 

Practical Aquaponics Concept, Application and Understanding.
the greenhouses have you he's well it's
all just like the African jungle isn't
that better
it's all stuff that you can eat which is
good what are you growing in here it's
like everything
well we've got all sorts of stuff
cabbages and tomorrow's silverbeet just
about everything into name anything that
grows above the ground that's available
we can grow now the question is where's
the soil and rocks at work i guess you
could call it soil of a sword but it's
pretty rough I'll soil it's actually
gravel 20 millimeter or three-quarter
inch gravel and we grow all their stuff
in gravel and grow food and gravel well
it's a good question it's really bad
distributing nutrients by using water as
the carriage point and gets up into the
gravel and the plants use it up just
like it wouldn't regular garden actually
but you can grow all this food without
any soil little absolutely yeah
absolutely as you can see it's growing
extremely well and in fact it grows
probably better than most Gardens
because we're always delivering water
and was delivering nutrients to the
violence so they're very happy
you better show me how it works what you
watching magic formula water and water
and fish fish and plants just all works
together so very very well
ok show you how ok alright well we've
got a fish tank he lets have a look at
this fish tank and we'll see the fish in
these are sleepy card they look sleepy
yeah they just that's what they do their
lawyer and although you might think they
did but they're not these are from North
Queensland their Australian native fish
although there are species of the
similar up through malaysia in that but
these are a great fish they repeatedly
the best eating of all freshwater fish
some talk they will taste good to me i
should say and what happens is the fish
do their business in the waters they do
right and the water is pumped through
the through the gravel grow beards and
by naturally occurring bacteria that
that's every way
it converts that fish waste into plant
nutrients and the plants use that up and
the waters returned clean for the fish
to start here the fish do their business
and it circulates through the plants and
gets filtered back as clean water clean
for the fish it's filtered absolutely
totally filtered so the fish living in a
wonderful environment and we're blessing
and strategy we have some marvelous
Australian native species that we
did that very well to 10 culture because
the way they've evolved have evolved in
streams and and Billabong's you know
they used to living in those kind of
spices so they think they're in heaven
here and they just got everything
supplied food lovely clean water all the
time and a safe place to me right
it seems perfect but food grown from
fish blue should we be worried about
that and I not at all because they if i
was to put some ketchup and you're in my
veggie garden you think it was good yeah
that's the same thing the plants use up
that stuff really really well and
remember the naturally-occurring what I
have to stress is that this is an
ecosystem
it's an ecosystem garden and we utilize
all the wonderful things in nature and
you know the bacteria and fungi all that
sort of stuff set up and grows in your
gravel grow beards and gives the plants
the perfect nutrient that they made that
world that we can hear pouring out into
the tank what is that that's what are
returning from the gravel Groby write
these gravel grow beards have an order
is often devices and when the the bed
fills with water the water softened
trips drains the water back into the
fish tank so the vigil is filling and
driving feeling and raining all the time
are you having to use a lot of water
because it looks like you are now
actually that's one of the magic things
about aquaponics particularly for
Australia is that we don't waste any
water the waters recirculating so there
any water that is lost is that which is
used by the plants had transpired and
actually in the plant growth so we
actually not waste any water at all it's
one giant cycle is insane water going
around here and there's a researcher and
striding researcher dr. Wilson minute he
tells us that we only use ten percent of
the water that you would need to grow
the same plants in a regular garden and
that's because we're not losing you need
to the subsoil because normally in a
regular garden horrible sight through
and offered guys and when it soaks
through an offer guys that actually
takes with the nutrients so we don't
have the nutrient loss either in these
bins and that's why plants grow so well
so fish business is as good as took
manure I reckon it's probably because it
you when we see those edges you know
because I'm with it but then you'll know
that's really good
