Effishent is a social startup that aims to end malnutrition by introducing rural communities to the groundbreaking methods of Aquaponic- and Hydroponic Farming.
Aquaponics describes the symbiosis of fish breeding and vegetable farming in one water cycle.
The fish waste functions as a fertilizer for the plants.
The plants filter the water which then flows back to the fish.
Aquaponics works independently from soil and needs 90% less water than traditional agriculture.
In a hydroponic system, plants grow in a nutrient rich water film.
In contrast to Aquaponics, the plants receive nutrients from fertilizers and not from fish.

But, common Aquaponic and Hydroponic Systems are either high-tech and expensive or low-tech and unproductive.

So, we developed a system that combines the best of both - simplicity and efficiency.
Our system can be built-up using entirely locally available materials.
With its size and low initial investment, this system is a perfect fit for families and rural...
