aquapontic (adjective)
A reference to the cultivation of plants in nutrient solutions instead of the ground.

Aquaponic systems contain three parts: fish to produce ammonia, bacteria to break the ammonia down to nitrates, and plants to feed on the nitrates to create fishfood to start the cycle all over again.

A mini aquaponics system is an excellent means of demonstrating aquaponic principles and the nitrification cycle in a recirculating aquatic environment.
