When people on diet, they usually replace meat with fish in their diet. Many people likes eat fish from both young and old people. The demand is increase and it make us worry about the quality of fish will be more in less.

Tilapia farming or tilapia aquaculture is one of the fastest growing fish domestication practices worldwide and just like other fish rearing practices such as Catfish farming; Tilapia farming can also be successful when some special considerations are integrated into the business.

Tilapia is the most delicious fishes and more prolific fish species; it provides a whitey flaky meat. In Israel over 2,000 years ago started to have Tilapia farming. It is a hardy fish that requires between 74-85 degree Fahrenheit to flourish. It can be indoor or outdoor ponds of farms.

Tilapia farming is done under a controlled environment, they may achieve a 3% body weight gain a day, and for every 1.5 pound of food consumed by a Tilapia, it should gain around 1 pound of weight. Commercial pellets are used for Tilapia farming and prices of such feeds may vary from one location to the other, however on the average, it costs around $0.20 per pound of feed. Feeding in Tilapia farming can be done manually with the use of a hand or with a sprinkler.

Tilapia farming is the need for warm water, thus, if you cannot provide warm water naturally or with slightly warming equipment then water that should be pumped into the ponds should have been pre-heated slightly.

Tilapia fishes have greater survival rate when domesticated than catfish and some other fish species. Tilapia farming indoor is more expensive than raising Tilapia in outdoor farms because they grow in natural habitats and they may feed on natural growing foods such as algae.

It is very important to have stand-by capita that will help fund any emergencies. If you are proposing Tilapia farming with about 80,000 total weights of tilapia fishes, then you will need more than half of 80,000 gallons of water in your holding tank. Along your holding tank, you will also need facilities such as waste treatment, water pipes, and sump tank and bio-treatment units. You will need a flow rate of 10 gallons of water per minute, and you may spend more than 80 hours to fill up a huge Tilapia farming pond.

In Tilapia farming cultivation, it is very important to have  stand-by capita that will help fund any emergencies, though Tilapia fishes have higher survival rate than most other domesticated fishes, you may spend less in treatments and other expenditures, but Tilapia survives most in warmer water conditions.

Now, with tilapia farming you not only can eat the most delicious fishes around, but you can get the benefit from this tilapia farming.
