Now this is probably the best way to prepare. The link below shows my aquaponics system from start to current day. Like gardening, forget doing this and expect to eat much from it the first year, unless luck is on your side,,,
Basically, you feed fish, they shit, bacteria in the grow beds convert the droppings into plant food, water is recyled to the fish tank. you grow food and fish, and if done inside a greenhouse can be done year-round.
