Flocponics: The Integration of Biofloc Technology with Plant Production and The Possibility to Reduce the Protein Level of Tilapia Juveniles’ Diet
Palabras clave:Flocponics T, Tilapia
FLOCponics is defined as the integration of biofloc-based (BFT) aquaculture with hydroponics. The technology is an alternative type of aquaponics system where recirculation aquaculture system (RAS) is replaced by a system based on BFT. The term "FLOCponics" was recently proposed to identify and unify the systems that have been previously called “BFT+hydroponics”, “BFT+aquaponics” or “BFT+plant production”. Aquaponics and biofloc-based aquaculture are considered environment-friendly approaches to food production, as both are intensive aquaculture systems with a strong focus on nutrient recycling and water saving. FLOCponics shares these characteristics. By adopting the principles of aquaponics and biofloc, FLOCponics can become an additional means to reduce the challenges of the global sustainable food supply.
