NEEDED MATERIALS TO STARTUP A FISH FARM

  1. Secure a Land: these is the first thing to consider before starting a fish farm, making sure your desired land doesn't affect the neighbors because after some time the water the fish is kept in smells.

  2. Build a pond: the cost of these differs in different locations, but if you wouldn't be into these business I suggest you purchase imported pools(trampolines) so anytime you desire to stop you can always just pack it up.

  3. Burrow a Borehole: these is the sole purpose of fish farming, absence of it might result to debacle since water should be changed on general interim, Rain water and faucet water from synthetically treated source isn't prescribed for fish development. And my advice is get a strong generator just in case you are in a country were electricity is a problem.

  4. Introduce Overhead Tank: well I'm sure you already got these figured out when we talked about burrowing a borehole, incase you can't get tanks then you can dig a reservoir, but make sure to cover it.

  5. Get fingerlings: you can always get these from farms that spends significant time in providing it. Just make sure to get it from a farm who treats them properly.

With all these you are good to go, make sure to provide net coverings for your ponds.

Good one friend, Gone are the days when the only means of getting fish is by catching it in the local rivers and ponds through trial and errors. Today, the modern farm practice has made it possible to grow fish in the farms and control the input.

Fish Farming is great yet it requires alot of time and above all cash.

This is very nice. Although fish farming is stressful and requires alot of time,commitment and most of all money. I'm actually into poultry farming. I'm happy you are able to have a fish farm. Goodluck

Thanks alot, and yeah it's stressful but once you put your mind to it it becomes easy

You have a minor misspelling in the following sentence:

WHEN YOU START YOUR FISH FARMING, PLEASE ENSURE TO PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO YOUR FISHES, AS TO KNOW WHEN TO SEPERATE THE FISHES BASED ON SIZE, CAUSE THE BIGGER ONCE GET TO EAT THE SMALLER ONCE, AND ALSO MAKE SURE TO ALWAYS CHANGE THE WATER YOUR FISHES BREED IN, AN REMOVE DEAD FISHES FROM THE POND.
It should be separate instead of seperate.
