The aquaponics book is an open access publication. A big consortium, consisting of members of the European Aquaponics COST network and beyond have been working on the book in their free time. The book itself can be seen as the main dissemination of that European COST Action. The content of the book is described as follows:
"This open access book, written by world experts in aquaponics and related technologies, provides the authoritative and comprehensive overview of the key aquaculture and hydroponic and other integrated systems, socio-economic and environmental aspects. Aquaponic systems, which combine aquaculture and vegetable food production offer alternative technology solutions for a world that is increasingly under stress through population growth, urbanisation, water shortages, land and soil degradation, environmental pollution, world hunger and climate change."
