Aquaponic technologies and systems are considered growing industries in many countries, with great environmental and socio-economic benefits. Aquaponics uses a system that combines two technologies such as aquaculture specialized in fish farming, and hydroponics, which studies the cultivation of plants. Climate change and the impact of global warming on the ecosystem, declining aquatic animal stocks and the response to growing demand are turning points in our century and in the era of sustainability. Through a phytotron type system, different solutions can be implemented to collect performance indices, impose plant watering criteria (follow the parameters of the aquaponic system such as temperature, water level, humidity and others) using cloud data storage support other facilities offered by the Internet of Things (IoT) concept. Therefore, this study focuses on the sustainable use of aquaponics as a platform for all-in-one solutions covering technical, managerial, socio-economic, institutional and environmental measures in the implementation requirements taking into account the possibility of aquaponics systems to have on the side of electricity a certain energy autonomy if these aspects are considered from the implementation of the aquaponic system.
