Two times a day from fingerlings to three months, and once a day from the 4th month onwards to avoid wasting fish feed pellets, as large fish need 20 hours to digest their feed fully. Of course, the fish farmer should consider their fish population, fish food response, and fish health.
In order to better ensure the stability and development of the fish, some fish farmers should insist on patrolling the fish ponds in the morning, noon and evening, observe their activities and how they eat feed pellets, to judge the health of the fish. In addition, fish farmers should also observe the water body, water quality, and water color changes. Water has a great impact on fish, which can cause fish to get sick and even die.
There are many things that fish farming beginners need to learn, not only in books but also in practice. To get started as soon as possible, beginners ask experienced fish farmers who can tell you to avoid common problems. For example, do not overfeed fry in the early stage to make the fish grow quickly, or the quality of water and fish feed pellet is essential to the fish. It is beneficial for beginners to develop well.
Active disease prevention is also a critical issue in fish pond management. Fish live in water, so they are not as easy to be found after disease as terrestrial animals, and it is challenging to give drugs at the same time. There are two methods of drug administration in daily production, external use and internal use. External use generally refers to sprinkling some disinfectant liquid into the pond, and internal use is usually added to the fish feed pellets. When the fish is seriously ill, they do not eat food and cannot be treated with internal medicine. Therefore, disease prevention is vital in production.
How to disinfect? First, fish farmers must clean up fish ponds within a certain period. Remove excessively thick silt in the pond, dry the pond in the sun, and use quicklime, bleaching powder, and other drugs to clear the pond to kill the insects, eggs, and pathogens. Second, disinfect the fish’s body. Before the fingerlings enter the pond, medicated bath disinfection is carried out. Medicine bags can also be regularly hung around the fish feed pellets during the breeding process. The local water around the food reaches a particular medical concentration, and the fish can be sterilized by medicated bath when eating.
Besides cleaning fish ponds and disinfecting fish, what other methods are there for disinfection? Fish farmers can regularly use micro-ecological preparations to rapidly oxidize and decompose the organic matter of sludge and inhibit the reproduction of harmful bacteria. Or scientifically use the aerator, start the aerator for 1-2 hours at noon on a sunny day to accelerate the oxidation and decomposition of the underlying organic matter.
For advantages, a tarpaulin pond is more reliable and durable if fish farmers get excellent quality tarpaulin. Concrete ponds help in boosting pH naturally, making the fish more adapted to the pond’s environment and promoting their growth. The disadvantage of a concrete pond is that it needs to repair constantly and cannot move. For a tarpaulin pond, the price is high. Constant leakage if fish farmers get poor quality tarpaulins.
Besides the fish feed pellets will affect the fish’s growth, but the pond environment is also one of the critical factors. Therefore, fish farmers should choose carefully before building ponds.
The soil is the best for fish ponds, followed by stickiness, and sand is the worst. In fish ponds that have been raised for 1 to 2 years, the accumulated fish feed pellets, fish excrement, and organisms are mixed with sediment to form silt, which replaces the original soil. If there is too much sludge, the oxidation and decomposition of the organic matter will consume a lot of oxygen, which is easy causes hypoxia. Moreover, the anaerobic fermentation of organic matter will produce harmful substances such as ammonia and hydrogen sulfide after hypoxia, which affects the survival and growth of fish. Usually, when the fingerlings are stocked, the bottom of the pond should be kept with a thickness of 5cm of silt. It has a significant effect on supplementing the nutrients in the water and maintaining and adjusting the fertility of the water.
When raising fish, fish farmers should pay attention to the quality of fish feed pellets and the management of ponds. The best fish pond is a rectangular pond long from east to west and wide from north to south. The advantage of such a pool shape is that the ridge of the pool is less shaded, the surface sunshine time is extended, which is conducive to the photosynthesis of phytoplankton, and the pool water can naturally increase oxygen in the dynamic, which can reduce the floating heads of fish. The aspect ratio of a rectangular pool is 5:3. This kind of rectangle is beautiful and conducive to feeding management and network pulling operation. It is also easy to cause pool water circulation when filling water. There should be no tall trees and houses around the pond not to block sunlight and wind.
In addition to feeding the fish with high-quality fish feed pellets, the establishment of the bottom of the fish pond is also the knowledge that fish farmers need to know. Some ponds are shallow around and gradually deepen towards the pond’s center, but it is very inconvenient to fish and transport fish to dig up silt. Some have a flat bottom and slope toward the outlet waterside. Although it is convenient to drain fishing, it is very inconvenient to remove the silt. These problems for fish farmers must be carefully planned before development and mediated according to their conditions.
The pond area should be relatively large so that the fish have a wide range of activities and are also greatly affected by the wind. The wind can increase the dissolved oxygen and improve the dissolved oxygen conditions of the lower water. However, if the area is too large, it is not easy to distribute the fish feed pellet evenly, the water quality is not easy to control, and the management is not convenient. It is generally believed that the pond area is about ten mu.
Ponds require a certain depth and storage to increase stocking and increase production. The pond water is deep, the water storage capacity is large, and the water quality is relatively stable, which is beneficial to fish growth. But it is not the more profound, the better. If the pond water is too deep, the lighting conditions of the lower water are poor, and the decomposition of the fish feed pellet consumes a lot of oxygen, which will cause the fish to lack oxygen, so the water level of the fish pond should be kept at 2.0m~2.5m
If you are a beginner and want to build a fish pond, you need to choose a place with a good water source, high water quality, convenient transportation, and power supply to make the fish pond. It facilitates water injection and drainage and the transport and sale of fingerlings, fish feed pellet, and adult fish.
When building ponds, fish farmers should consider whether there is a good water source nearby to change the water frequently. Due to the high stocking density of fish in the pond and a large amount of fish feed pellet, the oxygen content of the pond water will be reduced, and the water quality will have quickly deteriorated, resulting in serious fish death. Although an aerator can be used to increase the amount of oxygen, it cannot be conducive to fish growth in the long run.
The pond’s water source is the unpolluted river and lake water, with high dissolved oxygen and good water quality, suitable for fish growth. Therefore, the fish pond is best to close to the river or lake, but many fishers cannot use the lake water as the water source and will use drinking water. Remember to change the water frequently. Fish farmers often face the problem of fish hypoxia because there are too many fish and too many fish feed pellets, but the use of aerators can alleviate this phenomenon.
What do fish generally eat? There are natural and artificial. Raw feed refers to phytoplankton, zooplankton, benthic organisms, aquatic plants, etc., produced by the water itself. Artificially matched feed refers to the configuration and processing according to the protein and fat required by different fish. In particular, Nigerian fish farmers who choose intensive pond fish need to buy feed produced by professional fish feed pellet extruder-making machines to ensure the healthy growth of their fish.
For Ghana fish farmers, the choice of fish species is a problem as important as fish feed selection that needs careful consideration.
Some people will choose to cultivate their fingerlings, and some will buy them from the local market. If you purchase it, you will also consider the transportation distance and the quality of the fish. Fish farmers should estimate costs according to their conditions and make decisions after considering various aspects.
What’s the size of the pond? What’s the water level? How many fishes are in one pond? How often do you change the water? Which feed are you feeding them? How reliable is your seed source? The growth of fish is highly dependent on the factors listed above.
To get the best outcome of fish farming, don’t overstock, change their water regularly, get seed from a reliable market, use high-quality feed like Lima fish feed from 2mm on a starter, don’t change feed sizes quickly, and mass feeding.
Fish farmers need to know that the environment is crucial for raising catfish, including whether the water quality and temperature are suitable for keeping catfish, whether the pond to be built is convenient for transportation, and whether there is a water source power supply nearby.
