Or you can start big and hire professionals

But it's not really profitable sha less than 30% net profit

It beats saving money in useless Nigerian banks. I understand the hiring professionals part. But you know we are Nigerians. We are dubious people. I engaged professionals before and my eye saw shege. I had to learn every step myself from seedlings to marketing.

At the scale I stock, I won't say I'm doing bad.

This is one fish I dislike with passion. How do people manage to eat it sef?

I hate the fish too but my wife loves it. She makes it almost all the time..
In fact the one she made yesterday, I was just eating it with strong mind ni, everything about it irritates. Just knowing that it's cat fish I am eating alone is enough to make me puke.
the only exception is if it is dried/smoked.

Dangerous chemicals.

The bigger the fish, the more unhealthy for consumption.

More chemicals, more heavy metals

Okay thanks. Is it better than using just tarpaulin supported with iron rods. I don't know if you have seen that type before

Just a large hole dug a few feet into the ground and convered with thick tampoline large than what is used to cover trailer. I don't understand what they needed those tires for.

If you are new to catfish farming or you have being farming catfish you will understand the principle of making money in catfish farming is " The Big the catfish in size and weight the more the profit"

This principal is simply because of the fact that catfish is sold by weight and because it's sold by weight you need a good weight and size to make it big in the biz.

However they are some principles that guide you achieving this success they include

Space
Water
Good specie
Feeding
Feed

All these elements affect the successful production of catfish and we have carefully discoursed each with examples and how to achieve it

That's impressive... I like catfish pepper soup that's been infused with the right blend of seasonings and scent leaves (efinrin).

Mortality rates can indeed be very high for fingerlings and all the growth phases of catfish if the five elements stated above aren't adhered to.

The OP spoke with a lot of voice clarity in the video. Nice thread.

I assume you are of Ijaw descent. So, which fish species do you eat with your BOLI (roasted plantain) in Rivers State?

Why do you think Ikwere folks like catfish?

I like the business but I wonder whether the market demand is booming.

DEPENDS ON YOUR LOCATION. IF YOU DONT HAVE LIGHT TO CHANGE THEIR WATER EVERY TWO DAYS THEN IT WONT BE LUCRATIVE.

ALWAYS START SMALL... JUST TRY 10 CATFISH IN A SMALL PLACE, THEN CALCULATE YOUR EXPENSES AFTER 6 MONTHS. IF ITS WORTH IT THEN PROCEED TO LARGER ONES. DO LIFE STEP BY STEP.

This business can take your life ….

Don’t go into it without proper knowledge…

And it’s always advisable to start small… once you’ve learned the basics you can start expanding
.
Catfish fed with with chemicals are even carcinogenic. I prefer the natural ones.

I have seen my friend lose money on this. I believe it's more of practical experience and as always money is involved. Learn the business before going into it.

Catfish farming is most useless venture ever. Show me anyone that makes money from it? Except the ones that sell fingerlings.

The only other way is to rear them in rivers. Apart from that, they have the highest mortality rate and no one survive rearing them in ponds or ANY other ways except from natural flowing water.

Forget the OP. If he is making money from it, he won't be doing unnecessary videos. He is looking for people that will buy his fingerlings. You can only make something from this business if you hatch yourself or rear them in rivers.

If you want to quickly lose your money, venture into fish farming

I don't hatch I am not looking for anybody to buy anything from me , I have been on this Nairaland teaching people for free since 2014 , I have threads that teach people agriculture for free and never asked for any payment before you accuse people always do your research it's a pity how people talk without making research.

you can start with as low as 100k, but the following must have been put in place. Pond and a functional water system because you have to change there water if not daily but aleast every two day, and most importantly, you water must be very good, free of iron but it advisable you test your water ph before stocking your pond. But note that the 100k is just for starting oo. Fish feed is still the most expensive and depending on the number you are stocking in your pond, you will spend money on feed expecially when the getting to 4week old but in summary you will need enough capital to sustain them.

just because you had a bad experience about it doesn’t mean other ls can’t succeed…fish farming is one of the most lucrative farming business, and I know several people that have made mad money from it and built houses. Though they have had years of experience and now big time farmers….just learn the ropes, and also importantly focus on a segment of it, some are into hatching, some processing to dried, so it all depend on want you want to achieve.
