Aquaponics takes separate phases of nature and puts them together to create a beneficial symbiotic environment. So naturally, our AquaSprouts team is a combination of all things good. We are innovative and creative, fueled by our longing to better the world. The contributors to this project come from all walks of life, allowing us to make AquaSprouts ideal for an equally diverse audience. Everyone on our team is very passionate about making products that we can be proud of, and more importantly easy to use.
AquaSprouts is based in our hometown, Austin, Texas. But beyond that platform, we equally value another—your countertop. Having AquaSprouts as part of your home or classroom brings us closer to our goals of educating our community and beyond.
We're changing the way we grow food!
Science at Work!
How our system works
Fish produce waste which is periodically pumped into the grow bed.
The plants use the fish’s waste for nutrients.
The fish and plants exist in harmony, helping one another thrive while cleaning the tank.
It's the perfect self-sustainable environment for both your fish and plants!
