With the debates initiated by the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm, and the publication of the Report to the Club of Rome “The Limits to Growth”, for the first time in the world, the risk of depletion of natural resources and land use is being discussed.

Nowadays, aquaponic pilot projects are growing, with the aim of studying the best methods for the application of the system on a large scale. The prospect, in fact, is that of a great expansion of this sector. This is to generate intensive cultivation and breeding systems that allow to sustain a necessary increase in production in respect of the environment.
These new perspectives in agriculture are very interesting.
