That's right, fish as well as veggies. Of course you will have to use an edible breed of fish for your aquaponics business but this is no problem as you have a wide choice of species with aquaponics. When an aquaponics system is up and running the fish and the plant-life will help each other out no end. So what do I mean by this? Well, the fish aquaponics supply the food and nutrients for the plant life. In turn, the plant life's root system actually acts as a impressive filter for the water the fish inhabit. All of a sudden an aquaponics business sounds like a sturdy business model!
There are testimonials from people situated all over the world who have created aquaponic systems to a standard where they are producing a constant supply of nutrient rich, organic plant life and vegetables. Now don't think you are going to lose your garden area or a whole room in your house when setting up an aquaponics system because this is not the case. I started out with backyard aquaponics for my aquaponics business. O.k., so it was not a very large business but it did provide me with extra money to pay the bills every month.
A lot of individuals who have constructed a small aquaponics system, have discovered that it will produce nearly 200 pounds of fruit and vegetables every six months - that' not a bad start at all is it! A small aquaponics business could really take off with that amount of produce.
Of course, if you want to produce on a larger scale you will have to go for a larger aquaponics system which will cost a lot more. It's worth keeping in mind though that this is a one time payment and will do wonders for your aquaponics business plan.
If you are planning on making this a business the most important factor will be to learn how to correctly maintain your aquaponics. I can tell you from experience that the key concern is to make sure that the water is clean enough for the system to work properly. Besides, you do not want dead fish floating to the top of your system every morning.
