Bear-Nord Aquaponics Systems combines conventional aquaculture (raising aquatic life in tanks or controlled systems) with hydroponics (the soil-less growing of plants in water) into one integrated system. The water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by nitrification bacteria into nitrites and nitrates, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients. Simply stated, the fish waste provides an organic food source for the growing plants and in turn, the plants provide a natural filter for the water. This filtered water is then recirculated back to the aquaculture system providing a habitable environment for the fish. This combination of aquaculture and hydroponics (aquaponics) is relatively new and the potential for using aquaponics to grow high-quality food around the world is tremendous. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations recognized aquaponics as a very viable solution to the worldwide food, water, and fish crisis. This situation will inevitably worsen unless society collectively moves toward sustainable agricultural techniques that benefit both people and the environment.

Bear-Nord Aquaponics Systems unique approach to residential aquaponics sets us apart from the competition. Our standard systems are insulated for more efficient temperature control and all components of the system (tanks and plumbing) are fully enclosed within cedar wood cabinets which can be fully customized. Naturally mildew and rot-resistant, cedar enhances the structure and physical appearance of our systems while giving a natural, earthy feel to our product. Our systems are aesthetically pleasing, and provide a quieter and more water & energy efficient product in comparison to other conventional open plastic-container designs available. Bear-Nord Aquaponics takes great pride in the craftsmanship of every system. Much time, money, and research were invested in order to design and manufacture a compact and a modular systems that could either be expanded in the future or configured to accommodate the space and needs of any consumer. Every detail has been meticulously thought out in order to keep these high end systems simple but efficient.

Our belief at Bear-Nord Aquaponics Systems is that we are offering much more than an independent source of food for your family. Rather, we are offering a catalyst for a new way of life, a life that is centered on a sustainable and eco-friendly approach to provide for one of the most important necessities of life. “FOOD”
