AbstractThis thesis aims to demonstrate that the world system of agriculture is not functioning at optimum capacity to nourish the world's population properly. Due to the author's passion about Brazil, it will focus on that area, although it can be applicable to many other world regions. The core intent is to offer aquaponics as an alternative agriculture system that is viable in the developing world, and in particular Brazil. This thesis also serves as a proposal for the continuation of the research and development of the theory that aquaponics is a viable tool for sustainable community development.
