The school of the ENNE Network: Provincial Technical Institute – PTO Kortrijk from Belgium is part of the Aquaponics project.
The amount of agricultural land is rapidly declining and our oceans are overfished. There is a need for innovative food production technologies.
Aquaponics combines aquaculture and soilless vegetable cultivation. The nutrients in fish feed and fish excrement are reused to grow crops. The PTI Kortrijk participates in the Smart Aquaponics project, an Interreg project between France, Wallonia and Flanders to promote aquaponics. We are developing three digital tools and an aquaponics guide.
