It is the technology of the development and would bring green revolution in the 21st century. In draught-prone areas, it is the 'Oasis in Desert'.

This Course Book will help in training farmers as well as teaching students right from high schools, colleges, institutions and universities. It would help the policy makers, corporators, government administrators and NGOs.

Aquaponic system design and application can be considered as a highly multidisciplinary approach drawing from environmental, mechanical and civil engineering design concepts as well as aquatic and plant related biology, biochemistry and biotechnology. A farmer must know the automatic control and computer science education to run the sustainable aquaponic farm for more profit.

This book will be useful for courses in agriculture, environmental science, biology, life science, mechanical and civil engineering design concepts as well as to aquatic, plant related biology, microbiology, biochemistry and biotechnology, computer science, commerce, economics and social sciences.
