Mr. Godfred Alimo, fish farmer and C.E.O for EXWANT Company Limited has asked individuals who want to venture into fish farming to consider factors necessary to make their adventure feasible.
Speaking on Kuapa yo, a Rite FM Agric focus radio program, the 2016 national fingerlings best farmer said, anyone who want to go into fish farming needs to put into consideration; site selection, cages, and security.
Mr. Alimo, whose company EXWANT deals in fishing and fish farming materials however, cautioned fish farmers to stay away from all forms of inferior fishing nets.
He continued that fish farmers must feed their fingerlings with good feeds to enable them grow healthy. He stressed that starter feed must contain 40% or more nutrients to sustain the fingerlings, adding that, bad feeding affects the growth of the fingerlings since it makes them weak and, that depreciate it quantity and price.
He further said, the fisher folks now have adopted a system called Tom Culture and Cage Culture for rearing of fingerlings intensively with good feeding to eliminate the limited harvest they are encountering.
Mr Alimo ended that, it’s always good to rear fingerlings in the lake since it safer and has best qualities as compared to those reared in the pond but still recommends the Cage Culture, as the overall best method.
