Urban aquaponics is a viable solution for many environmental impacts that result from common land-based soil methods of food production. Fossil fuel usage, climate change, urbanisation, and food security will be addressed and indicate reasons for considering locally grown food in sustainable, less land-intensive processes as a viable alternative and a solution. Buying local food is a growing opportunity for local economic development. Food security and urbanisation rates also serve to point out that urban farming is a way to provide fresh and nutritious foods to those in locations that otherwise have food shipped thousands of kilometers before reaching their homes or do not have access to fresh fruits and vegetables altogether.
