Fertilizing home grown herbs with fish poop

Alex & Nacho, from Rotterdam (The Netherlands), are trying to Kickstart their idea on fertilizing home grown fruits and vegetables with fish poop.

Their project, with the name EcoFarm, is based on aquaponics technique and is able to grow herbs and cherry tomatoes fertilizing them with the waste of a fish. They believe that local farming is the first step to deliver fresh tasty fruits and vegetables. With this goal in mind, Ecobird has started to develop a product line based on Aquaponics.

Aquaponics is a food production system that combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment where the waste of the fish is used as a natural fertilizer and the plants clean the water. The target Alex & Nacho have, is to sell the Ecofarm through the main online and offline retailers in Europe.
