Dis farming na One of the most popular farming for our obodo Nigeria. we don pass the era wey the only avenue to catch fish na for our local village river. For our obodo Nigeria today, the new method wey our farmers dey use now don make am possible to grow fish in their farms and control am well well.
If you don lose your job or dey find business to start now, me go recommend say make you start CatFish Farming for our obodo Nigeria. If you be farmer already and you dey look to expand your farm, me go encourage you to add fish farming to your farm. You go fit join fish farming and poultry farming because you fit use the poultry drops to feed for your fish.

Types of fish wey You fit farm
Make we come see which specie of fish we wan farm. Here na some of the popular fish family wey dey suitable for farming.
1. Cat Fish
This fish na the most cultivated in our obodo Nigeria even though say e no be the most popolar fish. One good thing about catfish be say one of the easiest fish species to farm.

2. Tilapia
Dis na the Second most popular fish for our obodo Nigeria fishing industry. Tilapia na fish wey dey live inside fresh shallow water for those of us wey dey wonder which one be tilapia. Dis one dey very easy to cultivate and e dey grow fast too.

Jolly things way dey for Fish Farming
1. Fish farming no dey cause any environmental hazard.Fish farming no be like poultry farming, you fit setup your fish farm anywhere, even for your house if you get big compound without any regulatory precaution.

2. Fish get plenty Omega-3 fatty acids wey dey good to human heart; this Omega-3 dey help keep our heart and brain work very well. Since wey e be say our body no fit produce Omega-3 fatty acids, the only source wey we fit get am na by eating fish.

3. Fish dey sell fast fast pass other animal products for our market and e cheap well well pass meat.

4. Fishery products na the most popular animal products for our obodo Nigeria market.

5. Fish na one of the highest source of protein inside and vitamins like vitamin D and B2 wey oyibo dey call riboflavin. Fish also get plenty calcium and phosphorus and na great source of minerals, like iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium.

6. Fish dey grow fast fast as new farming techniques don make am possible for farmers to fit increase the speed wey their fish dey grow. Dis techniques don ensure say farmers fit harvest and sell within short period of time.

7. Fish farming dey very profitable. With proper management, you get guarantee of making back 35% profit of your

Risks for fish farming business
1. Big money dey needed to start fish farm. Atleast half a million if you want start small.

2. No byproduct for dis farming like poultry farming where you fit harvest the drop and sell to other farmers and make extra money.

3. Fish dey very sensitive to manage any small mistake fit disturb their growth or kill them.

4. Because of COP (cost of production) farmed fish dey more expensive than the fish wey fishermen catch from the rivers and ponds. So, if plenty fisherman’s fish dey for market, you go find am difficult to sell because people go prefer the cheaper ones.

Wetin You need to start
1. Get Training
This business no be the kind one wey you fit do by just reading handouts or blogs. You need to go for at least one month apprenticeship. You and I know say trial by error no good for business except you get plenty more money to
experiment with.

2. Tank
This na the tank wey go dey supply water to your ponds. This tank must to dey connected to your ponds through plumbing system so that water go dey flow inside your ponds easily.

3. Ponds
Find experts to help you construct ponds. Make sure say plumbing work dem do am properly to ensure proper drainage.

4. Land
Any location dey good for this business because fish no dey cause any environmental hazard/pollution. If you mo too get money, half plot of land good to start with or better still your backyard if you get space.

5. Borehole
We all know say water na the life of fish and lack of water go surely cause disaster. You need to make sure say you dey change the water on regular basis. Water from natural source like borehole and river water na the best. Other source like Rain water and tap water wey don dey chemically treated no good for fish cultivation.

6. Juvenile Fish
They get so many farm wey specialize on Juvenile fish. I go update a few lists later for you here where you go fit get am buy. You need to go for the one wey dem they call high yield specie of either catfish or tilapia depending on your farm choice.
