Abstract

An aquaponics is an environment created to sustain both fish and plants. Plants require nitrogen in order to thrive and fish produce nitrogen as a byproduct. An aquaponics system uses the nitrogen produced by the fish to directly give it to the plants and carries back the filtered water back to the fish. Also ingrained in this water is the oxygen that is reduced by the plants. Oxidized water is healthier for the fish and

allows them to survive longer.

What type of system will allow to sustain both plant and animal life?
Ask
We thought of an aquaponics system to solve our problem.
We have a working frame and one row
for the plants. The design could
definitely be improved. The
aquaponics system was very leaky, so
we had to fill the holes with foam. We
are also still working on the second
and third rows to finalize the system.
Plan
Create
We welded the frame and cut the PVC into rows for the plants. Then we pieced the whole thing
together.
We tested the aquaponics system and while it worked it was very leaky. Therefore we had find a
way to patch up the leaks. We ended up settling with using foam.

Future Steps & What we Learned

Throughout the building of
the aquaponics we learned a
lot the engineer/design
process and how to problem
solve the issues we came
across.
