Frequently Asked Questions
Unlike traditional farming, at Fishveg we don’t use soil and all produce is grown inside a controlled environment. The weather or pests do not affect the crops grown at Fishveg
Unlike traditional farming, at Fishveg we use only 10% of the water used in fields and have a better yield because we are not affected by the weather
Yes, Microgreens are a super-quick crop that can be grown year-round. Despite their “micro” size, microgreens are considered a superfood high in nutritional value amongst many things. Microgreens are also versatile in their uses and can be eaten with or on just about anything, making them the perfect addition to any salad, soup, or sandwich.
Aquaponics is a combination of aquaculture (the growing of fish and other aquatic animals) and hydroponics (the growing of plants without soil) in one recirculating environment. In aquaponics, the fish produce waste that the nitrifying bacteria convert into nutrients for the plants. Plant roots absorb these nutrients to thrive. In return, the plant roots clean and filter the water for the fish to live.
When Compared To Traditional Soil-Grown Crop Production, Hydroponics Has the Following Advantages: Up to 90% more efficient use of water. Production increases 3 to 10 times in the same amount of space. Many crops can be produced twice as fast in a well managed hydroponic system.
Vertical farming involves growing plants indoors, which is why it’s sometimes also known as indoor farming. Instead of sunlight and rain, vertical farms use LED lighting and controlled growing and nutrition systems. Plants are stacked vertically in layers, so many of the farms look like warehouses filled with large shelving units.
By using artificial intelligence (AI) and digital monitoring to mimic nature indoors by controlling and optimising factors like climate, nutrients, and temperature. Fishveg utilises IoT sensors as well as a digitalised control platform and cloud system that manages and optimises the crops’ growth.
