Students at Corner Brook Intermediate have been delving into Aquaponics lately - the merger of Hydroponics and Aquaculture to grow some classroom-based vegetables and have been seeing great success. They have also been learning lots in the process.

The system, which abandons traditional soil for growing and instead circulates the water from a nearby goldfish tank to fertilize their plants, is set up in the school's science lab and has already seen success with sweet snap peas and other types of vegetable growth.

Recently, the Western Star newspaper sent a reporter to visit the school to see the project and share information on the symbiotic relationship the students have explored.
