What We Are

Aquaponics is a food production system in which fish and plants are raised/grown together. With bacteria, the fish and plants create an ecological cycle that is less water-intensive and less dependent on fertilizers and pesticides. Even though the technology dates back to the Aztec empire, the practice in recent years has become much more popular as people look for food production that is more sustainable and local.

Mission and Values

  • Sustainability – everything is done in search of minimizing environmental impact and preferably using renewable resources
  • Efficient use of resources
  • Close-loop cycles – as few resources as possible permanently leave the system, so an infinite loop can be made
  • Fun – to have a good time
  • Building knowledge and skills – uWAQ is about learning, gaining experience and growing, in matter directly and indirectly related to Aquaponics
  • Accessibility, simplicity, Locality and economy – This system should be accessible for anyone in the world to use, even if they lack materials and development
  • Ethical treatment of animals – Even though fish are a food source, they are also living beings who experience fear, pain, emotions and therefore their pain should be minimized and be treated as humanely as possible

Goals

We are currently in the process of designing and building our second aquaponics system.
