Recent era, agriculture is the inevitable process of all the countries in the world to improve their livelihood and economy of their society. The agricultural process is done by various classical approaches and methodologies but smart agriculture is the best among all for developing the cultivation quickly. The time is taken to get crop growth and yields are very long duration is the challenging task in smart agriculture. Though manpower and a huge amount of land are used in this system it takes plenty of time to produce the crops. To overcome the above problem soilless agriculture is introduced in popular countries for developing the crops using Rockwool. This innovative technique is used to increase the productivity within a small land and other resources required for cultivation. Hydroponics is the name of that technology plays a major role in agriculture and it helps the small-scale farmers to get benefit within a short period. This soilless agriculture technique is utilized the water resources for plant growth then will be recycled to avoid the wastage of water. To motivate this concept, Aquaculture is combined with this technique for effectively use the resources of nature. The entire system is automated using the IoT framework; further, it will be controlled and monitored through a centralized controller. Aquaculture is the concept of using fishes to grow in a box of water or a glass bed in a small place. Implementing this structure along with a smart hydroponic system on horizontal or vertical frames can reduce the work and recycling process improves the sustainability of natural resources in an agriculture field. This research work will improve the growth of the plants and fishes count effectively, similarly their economy also grown in a small place of land. The entire system is implemented with Big Data analytics framework for maintaining the details of the Smart Hydroponic-Aquaculture Farming (SHAF) systems effectively.
