Abstract

Using the both the hydroponic and aquaponic systems that are in the greenhouse at Lynchburg grows, I will show that both the water quality and the health of the plant are improved with the presence of the fish. I hope to introduce contaminants to both systems to see if the presence of fish makes the difference. I will be taking water samples and samples from the plants to compare to see which has the least amount of contaminants in the system.
