When fish and vegetables became family!

文字-A A +A

Walking into Linkou Aquaponics Demonstration Farm (林口魚菜共生展示農場) it becomes abundantly clear than this is no ordinary “farm”; the biggest difference is that the usual pond and soil are nowhere to be seen! The fish are raised in giant containers and the vegetables are grown in beds floating on the water – you don’t even need to touch the earth at harvest time, as the vegetables are simply harvested with a pair of scissors. 

The concept of “aquaponics” has become increasingly popular in Taiwan in recent years. Put simply, the accumulation of fish excrement in water is a lethal substance to fish, but through filtration and decomposition, this waste sediment is transformed into food nutrients that are absorbed by plants – during the process, plants also help to purify the water. By recycling water, aquaponics does not produce any waste products and therefore does not pollute the environment.

This means that this novel system can effectively solve a number of water issues present in large-scale “aquaculture” and “hydroponics” operations, and is in line with the concept of environmental sustainability. Interestingly, these fish and vegetable aquaponic systems can vary greatly in size and don’t require the purchase of expensive high-tech equipment. Whether it is in the family setting or at school, as long as a suitable space is available, one can create a rural environment to farm for fun or for ecological educational purposes. On top of all this, you can also enjoy eating healthy, clean food.

當魚菜共一家

走進「林口魚菜共生展示農場」,與一般見到的「農場」非常不同,最大的差別在於:看不到魚池和泥土!魚養在大型水桶裡,菜「種」在水植床上,連收成的時候也不用沾泥巴拔菜,而是拿把剪刀剪菜。

「魚菜共生」的概念與推廣在台灣愈來愈風行,簡單來說,魚的排洩物累積在水中對魚是致命的物質,但經過沈澱過濾分解後卻是菜所需要吸收的養分,同時,在這過程中菜也淨化了水質。魚菜共生能有效解決「水產養殖」和「水耕」兩種產業水資源問題,循環利用節省大量用水,不需排放不製造污染,符合環境永續理念。有趣的是,魚菜系統規模可大可小,不需花費昂貴成本購置高科技設備,家庭、學校只要有合適場地,就可達到「田園」耕作樂趣或生態教育功能,又能吃到健康衛生的食物。
