Growing your own vegetables is the new thing; but with the increase in urban areas, natural resources such as water and open spaces are on the decline. Bio Aqua Garden Malta is addressing these needs by using a highly innovative system that lets you do your own vegetable growing in less space, using less resources.

Aquaponics: A sustainable innovative technology

Bio Aqua Garden uses what’s known as Aquaponics innovation, a sustainable technology that integrates the growing of fruit, veg and fish together, both sustaining each other in the process.

Growing plants in these cubicles uses less soil as they take their food source from fish waste. The fish, on the other hand, live and benefit from the plants’ natural filter. This healthy relationship is what makes Aquaponics a sustainable innovation to grow your plants with less resources.

Bacteria is the good guy

The other, third element involved in Aquaponics is bacteria. The nitrifying bacteria are cultured within both the vegetable beds and the fish tank. These are crucial because they break nitrates into nitrites, which are not harmful to the fish.

What makes Aquaponics special?

Aquaponics solves hindrances presented by similar re-circulating technologies. How? The system eliminates the possibility of weeds growing within the vegetation area, reuses resources that would have otherwise been considered as waste, and the crops need much less water; all these make Bio Aqua Garden an eco-friendly solution.
