Aquaponics is a relatively new approach to food production that cultivates fish and plants in a symbiotic relationship. The OrganicNation.tv crew traveled to Flanagan, Illinois where Myles Harston of AquaRanch Industries has been working with aquaponics 1992. At his innovative facility, Myles grows tilapia and a wide variety of organic vegetables including lettuce, kale, chard, herbs, tomatoes, and hot peppers.
