Abstract: The paper gives an overview on the progress of the construction of a database of the pesticides that pose minimum risk when applied in an aquaponic system. Aquaponics is a developing food production system that integrates recirculating aquaculture (raising fish and other aquatic animals in closed systems) and hydroponics (plant production in water culture without soil) by using the fish waste as plant nutrient. Fish are highly sensitive to their environment, especially toxic chemicals: pesticides and other pest-controlling agents causing minimum perturbation in aquaponic systems have to be selected with an ecotoxicological approach.
