Aquaponics as a vertical farming technique has undergone various development to make it an efficient replacement for conventional farming methods. Hydroponics, a soil-less farming method has been combined with aquaculture (fish farming) to obtain a system with its own ecological balance. The disadvantages of these systems overcome by symbiotic relationship between them. As a result aquaponics has better production and growth rate than other farming methods. The aquaponics systems focused on increasing economically and sustainability of indoor and outdoor fish farming. Aspect like sustainability, development and economically efficiency improve of farmer health we must reconsider the agriculture sciences, by this we understand that we must develops technologies friendly for the environment. Combining aquaculture with hydroponics we obtain a new innovation named aquaponics which respects principles of sustainable agriculture (wastewater bio filtration by plants) and gives us the possibility to increase economic efficiency with an additional production (organic vegetables) to produce the nutrient rich food. The various parameters that are to be considered during the design and implementation of an aquaponic system have been discussed in this paper.
