Catfish tanks have been designed in door and out door in various materials;plastic, glass and concrete. The waste water from fish tanks is drained by gravity and supplied to plant beds with vegetables. The plant beds with vegetables are working as biological filters and thus the water from plant beds is pumped back into fish tanks by use of solar energy instead of Hydroelectricity power. Its solar energy that is also used to support aerators (oxygen suppliers for fish). Since the water is pumped from ground aquifers, its temperatures are raised by heating using solar heaters to maintain constant optimum temperatures for catfish growth. To reduce on ammonia production, the fish is fed based on demand. The catfish is reared to 800-1000g and eaten by household members or sold to customers. The vegetables (spinach) are harvested on daily basis depending on demand to support the family's diets. In making the plant beds and plastic fish containers, plastic waste is utilized....
