@Boomzee, Lagos is quite a distance from Abuja. Earthen pond is a replica of their natural habitat, therefore that should be best. You can reach me on my contact. Maybe we can work out sometin. Tnx

Please house I am having a very serious issue in my farm. I started hatching about 4 months ago. Each time I do, often I get good result. But once I change the water, it begins to drop until it goes off. What can be the problem.

Some of the 30 fishes I separated for use as broodstock are showing good prospect. On weighing them yesterday we had 1.8 kg, 1.5 kg and 1kg and they completed 4 months yesterday. This is really surprising.. about 5 of them weight 1.8 kg we were experimenting with floating food only.. coppen and i can now confirm that it is almost possible to have more than 1 kg fish between 4 to 5 months without local feeds.

Great news... Yeah its definitely possible to get 1kg fish wth floating feed in 4months + Not only Coppens... Even with only Vital Feed bcoz i av also used it.

#but i prefer the local sinking feed now coz u can manipulate the ingredients to ur desire.

Thanks guys,
@ Fhemmmy these are from the concrete pond, i dont have earthen pond yet but like i said in my earlier post i am hoping to contruct a little one next year for the cultivation of broodstock

@ Belexy, i agree with you, but presently i dont know much about formulating local feeds and to be honest the comparative cost advantage will need to really be much for me to consider adding local, cos if i consider all the wahala of trying to source the various ingredient with constant fluntuation of price and scarcity of some of the ingredient it just sometimes discourage someone, and when you want to run a smooth operation with consistency the last thing you need is the unavailabilty of some key vital ingredient. even maggot that is almost free the wahala of that one sef no be small thing, how many fowl shiiiiit i go carry and store to become maggot for me to feed between 2000 to 5000 ( assuming thats someone stocking level) on a consistent basis agreed it could act as a supplement.

@ Komakan, thanks, i agree with you but anyone who is lying is only deceiving themselves, so far majority of the farmer here have been honest, posting but their success and failures, if you like go and take a photograph of a shark and put it here to say your fingerlings don grow reach shark size in 2 months, we will just be laughing at you lol but on a serious note its needless to falsify stuff cos no one know you face to face so its your business.
i for one i have spoken to a few people i have met on this thread and this website ie Robonski, Fhemmmy alias the novice and these guys are men of integrity.

On a final note, we are currently negotiating a supply deal with an eatery, they want us to be supplying them between 70 to 100kg every two weeks, the gurus in the house what will be the frequency of stocking to be able to cater for these kind demand and is it feasible, the price they are offering seems reasonable at 500 naira per kg. i will also ask this question in the question and answer section on agricnetwork.

i salute the house

Nice job Jites.

Given the price of fish NOW N500 per kg is not bad. But if its they are consistent I think you should have a fixed price and don't fluctuate like the market woman. I supply a few eateries in Benin and I sell at N600 per kg for about 2yrs now. I don't supply less than 2kg per fish(Just trying to create a standard)
