WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU
We can help you carry out a feasibility survey at your proposed site, design your fish farm and help in the setup, construct ponds/tanks, etc. Upon completion of your new ponds we can also help you to source for fingerlings and stock them in the ponds. Do you need any of the following works to be done? Don't worry any more, LEAVE THE PROBLEM TO US . . . AND WE WILL SORT IT OUT FOR YOU!
Feasibility assessments for fish pond suitability
Upon request, we will visit your site and discuss details of your proposed fish farm. Thereafter, we will go ahead and assess the site based on your planned activities. You will then be advised accordingly.
Farm design, Site selection and pond construction
If your proposed site is found to be suitable, we will try to identify ideal locations for the proposed structures (ponds, tanks, hatchery, farm structures, drainage system, etc) and come up with a layout of the same. Upon request, we will go ahead to peg and construct all the ponds as proposed. Two options are available - you can either provide labour as we provide technical advise and supervision, OR we can save you the headache by using our trained pond constructors.
Fingerling supply and stocking
Once the ponds have been completed, we will test them and source for fingerlings to be stocked into them - depending on your preference.
In order to run a successful fish farm, you need to have staff who have the skill to do it. After the fish ponds have been completed and stocked, we can also train your staff (or yourself) on basic farm management techniques, fish feed formulation, propagation (if you have a hatchery), water quality management, etc. If need be, we can source for an experienced farmhand for you.
Hatchery design, layout and management
For those who are into fingerling production, we do assist with design and supervision of hatchery construction. We also offer insitu training for hatchery staff.
