The Eagle Nest Aquaponics Committee works in partnership with Eagle Nest Elementary and Middle School Aquaponics Program. Aquaponics is the symbiotic growing of plants and aquatic animals in a re-circulating environment. It combines hydroponic Farming with aquaculture. Water is cycled between fish tanks and vegetable growing areas. Fish waste acts as a natural fertilizer for the crops. Plants and beneficial bacteria scrub ammonia and other nitrogenous compunds from the water making it safe for the fish.
