What is Aquaponics?

"Aquaponics is the cultivation of fish and plants together in a constructed, recirculating ecosystem utilizing natural bacterial cycles to convert fish waste to plant nutrients.  This is an environmentally friendly, natural food-growing method that harnesses the best attributes of aquaculture and hydroponics without the need to discard any water or filtrate or add chemical fertilizers."  --Aquaponic Gardening Community, November 2010

So, what does an Aquaponics system actually look like?  Check out the photos from the Farm on Ogden, Chicago Botanic Garden in Illinois.
