Abstract—The excessive exploitation of natural resources and the rapid industrialization of societies have led to severe ecosystem destruction and exacerbated climate change. Today, the global ecosystem faces significant threats. Consequently, consumer demand for safe and healthy food is steadily increasing while preserving the environment remains a priority. In response, agricultural science has evolved to develop a novel agricultural technology called “aquaponics”, which combines aquaculture and hydroponics, surpassing conventional hydroponic systems. However, the adoption of aquaponics remains relatively low compared to traditional farming methods. This study investigates the critical technical aspects that need to be developed in the aquaponics sector and proposes strategies to promote its wider adoption. By identifying key areas for improvement and addressing technical challenges, this research seeks to accelerate the deployment of aquaponics as a sustainable and efficient farming practice.
