Water and Fish

Aquaponics System 

My responsibility was to design a poster that explains the Nitrogen Cycle of Aquaponics, specifically how fish poop helps feed plants without harming the fish at the same time. It starts off with fish eating food and then excreting waste (aka poop). In the process that waste is eaten by nitrosomonas and excreted into nitrites. Next, nitrobacter eats the nitrite and excretes it into nitrate. Then, plants eat the nitrates and any leftovers are eaten by dokdonela and thermomonas. Finally, dokdonela and thermomonas excretes the leftovers into nitrogen gas (aka water bubbles), which float out of the water's surface.
