7 Steps to Tilapia Farming – Step 4: Set Up Your Tilapia Breeding System

Tilapia farming can be simple if you learn what you need to know from A to Z.

Step 4 is to set up a tilapia farming system!



This is what I propose to show you in my upcoming webinar and How to Breed and Raise Tilapia for Food, Fun, Fertilizer and Profit! at home training course.


Tilapia survive and thrive in several environments, including tanks, raceways, ponds and cages. Rearing fish in a pond is the simplest method as the fish can be left to feed on the pond’s natural food, but you won’t get the optimum results unless you use cages.




Tilapia need to be raised like a crop for the best results!  You want to have fry tanks, fingerling tanks, juvenile tanks, and grow out tanks. When your fish are at juvenile stage you need to sort them male, female and runts. This is very important! At this point you can also select brood stock for yourself or to sell. The runts will just take up space if you want to get your fish to grow out. They can be used in aquaponics or for fertilizer.


I had one of America’s lead tilapia experts teach me this process and it amazes me how few I have met, if any, that know and understand this process. I went to an orphanage conference and some of the leaders were telling me they just got 100,000 tilapia fry and put them all in the pond, NOOOOO! This is not how you do it. You will not be productive.


What will happen is: Some of your Tilapia will grow real fast and eat hundreds of small fry and fingerlings. They eat one another until juvenile stage. Then your females will start producing fry at three months of age and they will not get large due to producing so many fry. Then you will get some monsters that will in turn eat others because there is so many fry available to eat and so on.


When you sort your fish at juvenile stage they will grow up faster and bigger and more uniform. This is what you want for Tilapia farming!  This means you will need a sorting area. We use three tanks and we can do it very fast.
