Every year in Spring time we build a huge demonstration for the Agricultural Society of WA for the Perth Royal Show. This year our theme is Water Wise and Trev takes us on a tour.
- Aquaponics is a symbiotic relationship between fish, plants and bacteria.
- The system works, Rainbow Trout are fed a high protein diet that puts waste into the bottom of the tank.
- The waste is pumped up into the tray above the tank, the clay is full of millions of bacteria.
- This nitrite bacteria fixes the ammonia, turns into nitrates which the plants eat and consume, cleaning the water which goes back into the tank.
