Is Aquaponics In Alignment with Veganism?

We are tentatively on using aquaponics as our main source of food production. I have felt torn about this because I want our community to be in alignment in every way with our values. The soil on our land is rocky and infertile. yes we will use permaculture to make our land into a garden of Eden eventually. bu

I found this article and the discussion that ensued to be very educational, and gave me hope that as long as we don’t eat the fish, that they can be happy and content. I loved one person’s observation about how unhappy fish tend to sulk, but his fish in the aquaponics system play and actually seem happy. http://www.treehugger.com/green-food/is-aquaponics-cruel.html

We will continue to research this topic as well as find out how to create the optimum conditions for happy fish:)
