What differentiates aquaponics greenhouses, like the one in Shoji Garden, from other all-season greenhouses in Quebec?t uniquely integrates aquaponics—a sustainable method combining plant cultivation and fish farming—making it a standout in Quebec’s diverse agricultural scene. In this system, fish waste offers a rich cocktail of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, which is transformed into vital nutrients for plant growth. Aerobic bacteria play a crucial role by filtering these droppings, making them safe for plant consumption, while the plants complete the cycle by purifying the water through their roots.

Aquaponics is an ancient practice, reminiscent of the Asian rice fields and the pre-Columbian floating gardens. Today, it’s gaining popularity across North America and Australia, proving especially beneficial during the harsh Quebec winters. With an aquaponic system in place, you can maintain a thriving environment for both ornamental and edible fish species, like trout, all year round.
