Why Is A Tilapia Hatchery Valuable To You?
We operate an aquaponic farm raising both fish and vegetables, and have been teaching people how to do this for nine years now. The biggest barrier we’ve seen people come up against is the great difficulty in procuring baby fish (or any fish!) to start their aquaponics system with.
We regularly hear of people who’ve built our backyard “Micro System” then had to drive 8 hours each way across a couple of states to buy a bucket of two hundred 1-inch long baby tilapia for a dollar each. With aquaponics gaining in popularity every day, this is a huge market for the hatchery operator that has just barely been tapped.
This tilapia hatchery manual includes complete text and photos, and is designed with the intention of empowering people with no previous hatchery experience to be able to run a commercial scale tilapia hatchery. It contains all the tricks and labor-saving shortcuts we’ve learned in nine years of hatchery development.
You will also receive, as a download, several supporting files, including an exclusive microscopic video that is crucial to understanding the tilapia biology explained in the manual.
Can’t find an affordable place to buy tilapia fry or fingerlings? Want to be part of the growing aquaponics community? Grow your own and sell them too!
This package also includes (at no additional cost), our $49.99 Fiberglass/Epoxy/Plywood DIY tank manual. If you are so inclined, you’ll have the information you need to fabricate custom fish tanks and other tanks yourself, from locally available and relatively inexpensive materials, using some basic woodworking skills and tools.
