The model of commercial catfish farming in ponds is gradually becoming hot at the moment and the initial success of industrial feed in some districts in Kien Giang province will help farmers have more new farming subjects in the development movement. aquaculture. To gradually form technical processes for raising a number of new aquatic species with high economic value and efficiency in order to contribute to the transformation of crops and livestock and to diversify aquatic products. Below will show you how to raise the most basic coral fish!

Conditions of fish ponds

Area: The larger the pond area, the more favorable for the growth of fish; Minimum area is 1,000 m2 or more, pond depth is about 1.5 – 2 m.

The ponds for raising coral fish are not contaminated with alum and are well ventilated without canopy cover. Building a pond near the water supply can be proactive in serving water for the whole farming season. Convenience of traffic, facilitating the transportation of feed, fingerlings and fish during harvest,

The platform is flat, sloping to one side of the drain for easy drainage and fish harvesting. The level of sludge in industrial farming ponds should be about 15-20 cm is the most suitable. The bottom of the coral fish pond must be dredged annually, should not be too thick and do not let the black mud rot will produce a lot.

Before putting fish into farming, it is necessary to drain the water and dredge the mud. Next, use lime to improve the pond bottom and eliminate impurities; Dosage is 7-10 kg / 100 m2, sun exposure for about 3-5 days. After the pond is renovated, supply enough water to the pond from about 1.5 – 1.8 m, the water supply must be clean and not contaminated.

Choosing the right breed

Choose fingerlings
Choose fingerlings

Choose seed of clear origin, good quality, healthy, complete fins, scales, no scratches, no loss of slime, uniform size of fish. Fish are flexible, swim quickly, swim in the water in groups; no signs of illness.

Newly brought fingerlings, before being released into the pond, they should be bathed with 2 – 3% salt water for 5 – 10 minutes to eliminate all parasites. Fish size > 10 g/fish. People stocked seeds in the early morning or cool afternoon.

How to feed and manage fish ponds

Use industrial feed 30% protein. Provide mixed flakes (industrial feed) provided by feed factories, feed fish twice a day, daily ration 5 – 7% of body weight. Change the appropriate amount of feed to avoid excess polluting the pond. Change pond water periodically twice a month, about 25-30% of pond water each time.

Conduct a fish inspection once a month. When farmers check, randomly catch about 25-30 individuals to determine the weight, evaluate the growth of the fish and detect the disease status of the fish in the pond for treatment.

Salmon can be harvested after about 18 months of culture. People raise catfish in single ponds with a density of about 0.5 fish/m .2, after 28 months of rearing, the weight was 3 – 4 kg/head and the length was 50 – 60 cm/head. Pangasius grafted in earthen ponds, stocking density is about 0.2 fish/m2, after 28 months of rearing, the weight was 3.5 – 4.5 kg/head and the length was 55 – 65 cm/head. The current selling price is about 250,000 VND/kg or more depending on the type, the larger the fish, the higher the price and vice versa. The polycultures grow faster than monocultures.

This model of catfish farming has earned billions of dollars for people in Kien Giang, Hoa Binh, and Bac Lieu. What are you still hesitant to try with this fish? Happy successful people!
