Fresh fish: Bernsteins hooked on growing aquaponics business

 Sylvia Bernstein not only imagined that meal — she made it available for anyone who’s interested in growing it for themselves. The aquaponics system combines aquafarming — raising fish — with hydroponics — growing plants in water.

The symbiotic nature of the method occurs when the fish waste provides a food source to the plants, and the plants provide a filter for the fish water. Microbes, aka bacteria, and worms convert the fish waste into nutrients for the plants.

And the result is a win-win-win. Fish thrive, plants thrive, and gardeners thrive.
