Sistemas De Recirculación Acuapónicos
Published 2012 · Biology
The aquaponic production system is a bio-integrated system that brings together recirculation aquaculture and the hydroponic production of plants. These nutrients, which are excreted directly by aquatic organisms or generated by the microbial reactions on organic wastes are absorbed by the plants grown hydroponically. Using aquaponic systems has several advantages over recirculation systems in aquaculture and hydroponic systems that use inorganic nutrients. One of them is the utilization of wastes generated by the aquatic components, which are a problem in all production systems. Bearing in mind that Colombia has great potential for production of fish and plants, it is indispensable and necessary to promote projects that link the two production systems. Thus, the next review seeks to describe, in general terms, aquaponic recirculation systems.
