Aquaponics is in a sustainable closed cycle the cultivation of fish in aquaculture is combined with the cultivation of vegetables in hydroponic culture. The Viennese company blün committed itself exactly to this method and developed Austria’s first aquaponics facility in the 22nd district of Vienna.
Austria’s first commercial aquaponics system has many environmental benefits.
Ensures resource-saving production: aquaponics combines fish farming and vegetable production in an eco-effective cycle.
It has low CO2 footprint: 1 kg of Viennese fish only accounts for just under 3 kg of CO2 before final consumption (compare 1 kg of beef approx. 26 kg of CO2).
“Transparent production”: all products are fully traceable
Offers locally farmed fish: diversification of the range of high-quality fish from Austria.
