I have done this Fact and Question blog to inspire you to unpack my simple answer of yes or no, true or not true.
I am hoping that when continue to do research on the very short answers you will discover why that was my answer.
There is so much information to search through, but I would encourage you to search my question and try not to go down the Aquaponics rabbit hole because you will get lost and confused .
Also in doing research on question and answers, it will lead you into really understanding Aquaponics and the mechanics of the system.
This will help you really design a system based on your discoveries and what you believe is correct way for you to build and operate your system.
Plants clean the water enough to make it safe for for fish? Answer; NO
Plants will NOT get all their required nutrients from fish waste alone? Answer; Very True.
Are Nitrates removed from the water by plants, and is it very important not to allow the high build-up of Nitrate levels in the system? Answer; True
A lot of different plants and vegetables can be grown in an Aquaponics system? Answer; True (most can be)
There are “Economies of scale” in Aquaponics farming/systems bigger is better? Answer; Absolutely True
Does harvesting of Fish or plants severely affect the balance of the system? Answer; Not True.
Does Fish need to rely on plants to be in the system or do Plants need to rely on Fish to be in the system? Answer; Absolutely Not.
Setting up a Commercial Aquaponics System can be very costly, but can be considerably reduced when you know how to? Answer; this is so true
Does a Commercial system need to have a balanced Fish density to plant density? Answer; absolutely not.

I am no expert or a scientist in the Aquaponics field, but I have been involved with Aquaponics projects for a longer time and I want to give you my opinion on all the Ba Ba Ba about Aquaponics, you can take or leave it?
