H20 Radio: Exploring Aquaponics

Aquaponics is a food production system that combines aquaculture (raising fish in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment.

H2O Radio visited three locations using the method not only for its environmental benefits, but for its social ones as well.
