How To Reduce The Costs In Aquaculture Farm

2022-07-20

With the improvement of global living standards, the demand for aquatic food is increasing, which in turn promotes the rapid development of the aquaculture industry. The breeding industry is very profitable, attracting more and more people to join the aquaculture industry. How to reduce the production cost of the aquaculture farm has also become a topic of increasing concern.

1. Reasonable feeding amount. a small amount more times to feed

Fish farming requires more patience when feeding. The feeding speed of fish is actually very slow, and many farmers often waste feed, which not only increases costs, but also damages water quality. It is important to feed the fish several times and a small amount. Observe the situation of the fish after each feeding. If you think that there are still a considerable number of fish lingering in more than ten minutes after the feeding, then it means that you need to feed. If the number of fish shoals is visibly reduced after feeding, then it can be almost stopped, and feeding again is a waste of feed.

 

2. Control the size of the floating fish feed pellets.

The size of the fish feed pellet is also very important for feeding the fish. If it is large, it will be eaten by the big fish. The smaller fish will not be able to eat it, which will form a vicious circle. The size of the feed for seedlings is controlled at about 0.5-1.5 mm, and the size of small fish is about 1.5-3 mm. The adult fish pays less attention to the particles, and it is about 4-8 mm. If the fed feed has larger particles floating on the water surface every time, it means that this feed is temporarily not suitable for the current stage of feeding, and needs to be appropriately smaller.

 

3. Using more floating fish feed pellets

Why is floating fish feed should be used more? The stability of floating fish feed in water is relatively good than sinking fish feed pellets, the extruded floating fish feed will not dissolve in water for a long time, the floating time of high-quality floating fish feed is up to 12 hours, and the floating time is at least 6 hours, and the bait is easy to observe and control, reducing Or to avoid pulverization and residual water pollution baits are very beneficial to environmental protection and fish growth. Can reduce water pollution. At the same time, the use of floating fish feed can reduce the incidence of diseases.

Here recommend the LIMA floating fish feed extruders for you to make your own floating fish feed pellets. Making your own feed can not only reduce feed costs but also allow your fish to eat healthier and more nutritious feed according to yourself. You know exactly what your fish eat, so you don’t have to worry about the quality of fish feed affecting the growth of your fish.

 

4. Raise forage regularly

Many fish farmers are now habitually feeding feed, and they are unwilling to feed some forage because of the trouble. In fact, regular mowing and feeding fish have obvious effects on reducing the cost of feeding. And the fish that are fed grass regularly will not only have better meat quality, but also the digestibility of the feed and the fattening effect will be much more obvious. For example, if 10 grams of fish fed purely on feed can digest 5 grams, then the fish fed with grass on a regular basis may reach about 7 grams, and the cost gap in between can be known by calculation. Therefore, if it is convenient, it is best to feed the forage regularly. It only needs a little labor, which can obviously reduce the cost.

 

5. Balance the breeding density

Many people think that the breeding density only affects their own benefits, and has no effect on reducing costs. In fact, this is a wrong view. When the density of the fish pond is too high, the feeding efficiency and fattening effect of the larvae will reach a very low level. It was good to keep them for three months. Now it takes three and a half months. You can calculate the extra cost. Secondly, the probability of disease and death at this time will also increase accordingly, and everyone’s cost of disease prevention will increase a lot, and the profits of the extra farmed fish are simply not enough to pay the price.
