Ecological aquaculture

In agriculture it is normal practice for regular soil tests to be conducted in order to modify and improve the soil medium. It is logical that a similar system should apply to freshwater systems.

Central to ecological aquaculture are the living plants and organisms that inhabit freshwater habitat, and the cleanliness of the water. Ecological aquaculture is the implementation of aquaculture ecosystems which produce not only economic, but also social and ecological profit.
