Please click here for all the updated news about Japan Aquaponics - 2013 has already been a busy year with lots of things to report!
We have put together a number of guides for anyone looking to find out lots more about aquaponics. This section is being added to every couple of days and shows our roadmap.
This is our latest installation of a Home Aquaponics system in the small backyard of an apartment near Tokyo. This family can now produce healthy food on an otherwise useless gravel yard.
Welcome to Japan Aquaponics, the first and the best source of Aquaponics information, education, consulting and equipment sales in Japan.
We provide a comprehensive range of services for anyone who wants to find out more about this sustainable system, is interested in improving their knowledge, or wants to grow their own 'better than organic' vegetables in their own home.
Our core service areas are:
Commercial Aquaponics Design & Consulting
Educational Aquaponics Design & Consulting
Home & Family Aquaponics Design & Consulting
Japan Aquaponics is a positive social enterprise that currently donates almost all of its profit to projects in Tohoku, helping communities and individuals whose lives were affected by the earthquake and tsunami in 2011. Please help support our work.
Aquaponics is the cultivation of fish and plants together in a constructed, recirculating ecosystem utilising 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 fertilisers.
In September of last year Japan Aquaponics, in collaboration with the Australia & New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Japan, and OGA for Aid, designed and installed a unique indoor aquaponics system for a Community Learning Centre in Minamisanriku. Minamisanriku was one of the worst affected areas after the earthquake and tsunami last year, and so this project was something that we have been hoping to complete for some time.
We had to design a system that could demonstrate the potential of aquaponics, as well as a couple of the methods commonly used in aquaponics. We also wanted it to be accessible to everyone and so we used components that are generally commonly available and which would be easy to replace if required. The produce grown by the system will ultimately be sold in the local community by the children who are involved in the project - and it will help raise funds and awareness for the community centre, and for aquaponics and sustainable agriculture in general.
Please take a look at the project and see the small part that we have been playing in the regeneration and support of communities in Tohoku as they work hard to rebuild their lives and their communities.
