Traditionally, Freshwater fish has been in much demand globally but as the market opens up for freshwater fish. We have already started an innovative Plan for promoting and producing freshwater fish by fish pond/cage culture. We have started to establish hygienic and modern fish markets having a moderate and high potential for fisheries. We are in process of establishment of a modern wholesale market and also to start our venture. We have also prepared to start diversifying the aquaculture activity.
Advantages of Fish Farming
Freshwater fish/Seafood is typically loaded with protein, omega-3 fish oils and other nutrients that are highly beneficial to impoverished areas. Fish farming can increase the supply of fish available for these regions, fighting malnutrition.
The aquaculture industry has created numerous jobs for people who reside in agriculture based areas where unemployment is high. It’s highly prevalent in Asia, where it provides thousands of jobs.
A farmer can integrate fish farming into their existing farm to create additional income and improve its water management and irrigation of farms.
Effective land use: effective use of marginal land e.g. land that is too poor, or too costly to drain for agriculture can be profitably devoted to fish farming provided that it is suitably prepared.
In addition to providing a source of income and employment, fish farming helps save certain fish species, such as cod, sea bass and red snapper, by reviving their populations with aquaculture.
Life Cycle of a Fish
Fish life cycles vary among species. In general, however, fish progress through the following life cycle stages:
Female fish release eggs into the water (either into the water column or into a nest) and male fish fertilize eggs by releasing milt. Not all eggs are fertilized. Some fish spawn each year after reaching maturity, others spawn at intervals (every four years, for example), while others spawn only once and then die.
Fertilized eggs develop into fish. Most eggs do not survive to maturity even under the best conditions. Threats to eggs include changes in water temperature and oxygen levels, flooding or sedimentation, predators and disease..
Larvae fish live off a yolk sac attached to their bodies. When the yolk sac is fully absorbed, the young fish are called fry.
Fry are ready to start eating on their own. Fry undergo several more developmental stages, which vary by species, as they mature into adults. Young fish are generally considered fry during their first few months..
The time fish spend developing from fry into reproductively mature adults varies among species. Most fish do not survive to become adults. Threats to survival include fluctuations in water temperature, changes in oxygen levels, competition for habitat and predators
When fish are able to reproduce, they are considered adults. The time it takes to reach maturity varies among species and individual fish. Fish with shorter life spans reach maturity faster. Lake sturgeon can live from 80-150 years, but females don’t reach maturity until they are approximately 25 years old
