Abstract: The culture of aromatic plants using this system is not a new activity but using flocs from Biofloc system is relatively new. That is why it was stablished a vertical aquaponic system to produce aromatic plants combined with tilapia production in a Biofloc system. It was planted dill, parsley and coriander. Tilapia organisms were fed with a dry diet with 35% of protein and Moringa as carbon source to produce Biofloc. At the end of experiment, tilapia organisms had a survival of 95% and weight of 436.24 ±0.52 g mean value org-1. The aromatic plant which obtain the highest length was the coriander with 20.94±0.49 cm, with a mean gain of 12.85 cm, an AGR of 0.080 cm day-1 and IGR of 0.59% day-1. The parsley has the lowest value with 8.64±0.46 cm total length, a gain of 2.37 cm, an AGR of 0.014 cm day-1, an IGR of 0.20% day-1. Dill obtained 11.55±0.15 cm of total length, a gain of 3.17 cm, an AGR of 0.019 cm day-1, an IGR of 0.20% day-1. The positive obtained results in this study suggested than Biofloc/aquaponics system is adequate to produce these three aromatic plants used in many food plates of Mexican cuisine.
