THE DIFFERENT STAGES OF PRODUCING FISH.
Currently the only fish specie in production is the Three Spot Tilapia.
The female gathers the eggs in her mouth. The eggs are then removed to induce further spawning.
The eggs are hatched in incubators and grown to fry.
From the incubators the small fry are placed into smaller tanks, where they will grow for approximately 6 weeks before they go into bigger tanks.
The fry get moved to bigger fingerling tanks, now called Fingerlings, where they spend another 6 weeks until they are about 3 months old.
After 3 months they are moved to the bigger growout tnks until they reach harvest size, which is 280g – 350g.
We also move fish to the expansion project in half hectare earth ponds where they grow to the desired size before harvesting.
Once the fish reached the desired weight, they get harvested
It takes about 12 months growth period for the fish before they can be harvested. The processing includes removing the visceral organs, gills and scales of the fish.
The fish are then reweighed and assigned according to size where it is then packaged and vacuum-sealed. A price is then assigned to the package and it is frozen.
