The Urban Aquaculture Manual is an on line course that covers a small Aquaculture System in detail.
Aquaculture is a type of animal-based agriculture that can be practiced in small spaces. It is suitable for city people who want to raise food animals but have limited space to do it. Unfortunately, there is little information about urban aquaculture. This manual was written to give city dwellers information about aquaculture in the city.

'Aquaponics' is a simple and innovative system of food production combining aquaculture and hydroponic growing techniques.

A good place to find how-to information on any subject is YouTube.

They will show you how some one is doing thing But not necessary where the got the parts you need .

With these web-pages I will try to have sources for all the parts you will need.

Here are some YouTube link to get you Stared.


The most simple definition of Aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (the soil-less growing of plants) that grows fish and plants together in one integrated system. The fish waste provides an organic food source for the plants, and the plants naturally filter the water for the fish.


Hydroponics is a subset of hydroculture, which is the growing of plants in a soil less medium, or an aquatic based environment. Hydroponic growing uses mineral nutrient solutions to feed the plants in water, without soil.


Aeroponics is an indoor gardening practice in which plants are grown and nourished by suspending their root structures in air and regularly spraying them with a nutrient and water solution.
Soil is not used for aeroponics, because the plants can thrive when their roots are constantly or periodically exposed to a nutrient-rich mist.
Aeroponics offers an efficient means to grow plants, including fruits and vegetables, without potting and repotting them to replenish their access to nutrient-rich soil.
