Recirculating aquaculture systems have experienced a remarkable growth over the last decade all over the world. Aquaponics is a soilless agriculture system that synergistically combines aquaculture and hydroponics. The paper presents different types of aquaponic system designs that can sustain many fresh water species of fish like Carp and Tilapia. Aquaponics has great potential to become a sustainable technology for nitrogen-rich waste remediation with simultaneous year-round production of high quality fish and vegetables while conserving the water. The common carp (Cyprinus carpio) was the first species developed to have an organic production standard in 1994 in Austria. Later on organic aquaculture standards have been created for other species of fish and sea food. This review provides some necessary background to worldwide conventional small scale aquaponic systems.
