Hi Ashutosh, very few people are aware of how much of our food will be raised in this Aquaponics fashion in the future, and this system uses only 10% of the water needed for the same amount of crop produced on land. The other detail that still fascinates me is how far India is behind in this area while other parts of the world have recognized the need and taken action much more quickly than here.  As water becomes more of an issue we will begin to see more of these systems. Let’s hope India gets on board soon.

Aquaponics is really a very simple sustaining system, and we think it is the simplicity of “the fish provide the food for the plants, the plants clean/filter the water, and it is returned to the fish tanks”, it all occurs with only a 7% loss of water which is due to evaporation. In my mind, the logic mimics what Mother Nature does and she is very eager to do something that is so good for our environment as well as feeding our bodies with clean, healthy fresh fish and vegetables.

Let me know how else I can help you with.

For your kind info that you mentioned, but the thing in i am new in Aquaponics
I want to know the basic like how to start and item required as well.

kindly provide some detail if i can contact you by any other means.

thank you


First ; There is plenty of information on the web. Freely available.
Second ; Start a small aquaponics system at home / own premises. Min investment and Max learning.

Finally ; In india there are no commercial projects in aquaponics farming. Almost everyone I have spoken to are trying their best at a hobby or amateur level.
As of now the nutrients / materials for constructing the aquaponics unit and the balance of water quantity to plants / water quantity to fishes / number of fishes to number of plants is still being refined.

All the best and keep persevering. Update us on your progress.
