Gardeners grow dinner with aquaponics

Picture this: Aquaponics is a closed system where many fruits, vegetables and flowers can grow in a soil-less medium, requiring just ten percent of the usual amount of water, fertilized by fish manure from the fish pond that can be either ornamental or can provide future dinners. How perfect is that?

What an awesome concept. Its easy to imagine a community that could supply itself with a steady diet of exotic foods and keep it all in the local sphere.
