Aquaculture

Aquaculture is the purposeful cultivation and subsequent harvesting of both freshwater and marine aquatic plants and animals. Aquaculture is breeding, raising, and harvesting fish, shellfish, and aquatic plants. Basically, it’s farming in water. Aquaculture is an environmentally responsible source of food and commercial products, helps to create healthier habitats, and is used to rebuild stocks of threatened or endangered species. Marine aquaculture refers specifically to the culturing of oceanic species (as opposed to freshwater). Examples of marine aquaculture production include Oysters, Clams, Mussels, Shrimp, Salmon and Algae. It’s made for fresh water fish, which include Rohu, Katla, Mural, Tilapia, Singhi, Pabda, Pangasius, Anabas/Koi and in some specific areas Shrimp.

Do Fish Farming & be a Profitable Farmer – Grow on demand seasonable fishes.

The Bio-Floc Technology system is designed and developed to improve the environmental control over the Aquatic Animal production. In Aquaculture, the strong influential factors are the feed cost (accounting to 60% of the total production cost) and most limiting factor is the water/land availability. High Stocking Density and rearing of Aquatic Animals requires wastewater treatment. Bio-Floc system is a wastewater treatment which has gained vital importance as an approach in aquaculture. The principle of this technique is to generate a nitrogen cycle by maintaining higher C:N ratio through stimulating heterotrophic microbial growth, which assimilates the nitrogenous waste that can be exploited by the cultured species as a feed.

The Bio-floc Technology Is Not Only Effective In Treating The Waste But Also Grants Nutrition To The Aquatic Animals. In Bio-Floc it’s advised to go with Fresh Water Fish.

Benefits Of Bio-Floc Culture System

• Eco-friendly culture system.

• It reduces environmental impact.

• Improves land and water use efficiency.

• Limited or zero water exchange.

• Higher productivity (It enhances survival rate, growth performance, feed conversion in the culture systems of fish).

• Higher Bio-Security.

• Reduces water pollution and the risk of introduction and spread of pathogens.

• Cost-effective feed production.

• It reduces utilization of protein rich feed and cost of standard feed.

• It reduces the pressure on capture fisheries i.e.., use of cheaper food fish and trash fish for fish feed formulation.

Why Tilapia……
Tilapia farming which originated in the Middle East and Africa has now become the most profitable business in most countries. Tilapia has become the second most popular food
after crab, due to which its farming is flourishing. It has entered the list of best selling species like shrimp and salmon. Tilapia is a tropical species that prefers to live in shallow water. It is an omnivorous grazer that feeds on Phytoplankton, Periphyton, Aquatic plants, small invertebrates,
Benthic Fauna, Detritus and bacterial films associated with detritus. Sexual maturity in ponds is reached at an age of 5-6 months. Spawning begins when the water temperature reaches 24°C.

The largest producer of Tilapia is China, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines and Taiwan also supply maximum Tilapia in the global market. Tilapia is being farmed in about 85 countries, and about 98 percent of Tilapia produced in these countries are grown outside their original habitats like Bio-Floc. It can survive and breed only in warmer water. The ideal water temperature for a tilapia farm is 19°-30°C. Tilapia are ideally adapted to Bio-Floc systems. The filter-feeding herbivores adapt to the harvest of Bio-Floc suspended in the water, and the strong, stable fish grow and flourish in dense systems. An essential feature of Tilapia production systems, especially as compared to Shrimp systems, is the very high biomass. This difference is a very significant feature for minimal water exchange. The high fish density, however, generates wastes at high rates. Tilapia eats plants, loves protein-rich duckweed (equal in protein to commercial fish feed) and also filters algae from water using tiny combs in its gills. Combining duckweed and commercial fish feed is good, but Tilapia grows Ok on duckweed alone. As the demand for fish is increasing, diversification of species in aquaculture by including more species for increasing production levels has become necessary. Introduction of tilapia in our culture systems advantageous because it represents lower level in food chain and thus, its culture will be economical and eco-friendly. Mono sex culture of Tilapia is advantageous because of faster growth and larger and more uniform size of males. Tilapia fish farming business is increasing rapidly day by day because it’s very profitable. If you are planning to go for Tilapia fish farming on large scale, there are subsidies available for commercial farming.
