The U.S. tilapia market is dominated by imports, with less than five percent produced domestically. It’s time to change this and we want to help! It’s time for people just like you to get the right how to tilapia farming advice.
Tilapia is a fast-growing tropical species, native to Africa, but resident in more than 100 nations, surpassing any other farmed fish. It is the fourth most-consumed seafood in the U.S. after shrimp, tuna and salmon.
Just a little info about tilapia:
Tilapia is tropical fish native to the Middle East and is amazing fish to say the least. The females keep their fertilized eggs in their mouths and due to this fact their survival rate in the wild is greatly enhanced.
This is why we call them “mouth brooders.” They keep their eggs in their mouths until they hatch, and take them back into their mouths any time danger arises for a few days after they hatch. In the wild, their survival rate is about 1%. The average “clutch” is about 100 to 3000 “fry” (babies) depending on the age of the female. A full grown female will carry 2000 eggs or more. That means that about 1 or 2 % of the offspring will make it to adulthood.
The Amazing Survival Rate of Tilapia
Survival rate in aquarium tanks, however, is beyond words.
Under controlled circumstances, as in your aquarium, we teach and train that your tilapia can have a 99% possible survival rate! Fry don’t die very often but they can get eaten; we will show you how to deal with this.
All it takes is the right training and knowledge and your fish will multiply! We watched one of the orphanages we worked with go from 47 fish to an estimated 15,000 tilapia fish in less than six months and they were just learning the ropes! Once you have the right how to tilapia farming advice, you will be unstoppable!
When the female is pregnant, you will see that she is swimming around with her mouth full, and will not eat. We note that day on a calendar, wait a day or so and get her out of there and into the nursery tanks. Tilapia, like any other fish, just don’t like it when you chase after them with a net. You can make them panic causing them to swallow their eggs.
In our upcoming training on “Tilapia Breeding & Fry Care for Fun, Food, Fertilizer and Profit!” I will give you detailed instructions with pictures, illustrations as well as videos on how to catch your pregnant female the proper way and help her “deliver” the babies. I have never seen this process taught by anyone else; I had to learn the hard way. It’s very important as you can lose/kill a female that will produce for years to come. The importance of keeping your brood stock can’t be underestimated as one female when fully grown can produce from 800-3000 fry, per cycle!
“Please remember this; just one delivery of 500 fry is worth $750 dollars, for just selling fry! No one can keep them in stock; everybody wants them, especially for startup Aquaponics and pond care.”
Before you release her into the nursery tank you have to make sure to check the net for eggs she might have released while on the way. Don’t panic just drop them into the tank, she will pick them up one by one after a while.
This is why we don’t clutter our brood tank with too many items; everything is at the back so we can net females out safely and quickly.
We will show you how to make sure you have the right filters so baby fry are not “sucked up” and killed in the nursery.
Soon, the mother will release the fry and it will be time for her to get back into the brood tank with care. If you don’t get her back in time she WILL eat her young. That’s why we make an escape area so the baby fry will remain safe!
