We use The Aquaponics Trifecta to illustrate the complexity of aquaponics in a simple, easy to digest way.

This resource was crafted for anyone new to aquaponics and Trifecta Ecosystems (Trifecta for short) – and for those aquaponic veterans who want a fresh look at the foundational principles of aquaponic farming. At Trifecta, we like to refer to these aquaponics enthusiasts, both new and seasoned alike, as aquapioneers. So join us as we travel through the frontier of agriculture.

Aquaponics Software

Fish are your friendly fertilizer factories. They produce ammonia (NH3) through their waste and respiration. Ammonia is the start to the nitrogen cycle that powers your system.

Microbes are microscopic organisms that live in your system, including bacteria, protozoa and nematodes. Two teams of bacteria convert ammonia to nitrite (NO2) to nitrate (NO3).

Plants filter out nitrate, using it as fertilizer to grow. This cleans the water, which is then safe to return to the fish. You can grow nearly anything, but leafy greens and herbs do best!
