Aquaponics combines fish farming and hydroponics. I read about it in "The Spotless Garden" in yesterday's New York Times and was intrigued. In this video, Connecticut gardener Rob Torcellini offers a tour of his greenhouse setup that allows him to grow vegetables year round. The yield dwindles considerably in winter (see the Winter Update video on YouTube when you finish watching this one). It's amazing what he's put together with off-the-shelf parts and some computer wizardry.
