Useful Guidance for Catfish Farming in Nigeria

Catfish farming is increasingly becoming an attractive form of agriculture for many Nigerians especially young people. This form of agriculture has found a huge followers-base primarily due to the relative ease of culturing catfish, the readily available markets for catfish, e.g. with restaurants, especially as catfish is a treasured delicacy among many Nigerian cultures as well as the profitability of a successful catfish venture.

The demand for Catfish in Nigeria is unprecedented so much that no matter the quantity supplied into the market is consumed by ready buyers. This is so because of its low caloric value, low carbohydrate content, high in protein, low in fat, it is quick and easy to prepare and above all, it tastes great.

Feeding Catfish: feeding constitutes the bulk of the cost of rearing catfish. Through development of fish farming over the years in Nigeria, feeding of catfish is predominantly done using pelleted floating feeds. This ensures adequate feeding of the fish thus increased growth rate and weight. For fish pelleting machines, Amisy fish feed machine is your best choice. Amisy is one of the well known manufacturers and exporters of Fish Feed Machine and Turnkey Fish Food Production Line.

I think you're being "catfished" if you think the fishmonger is that beautiful Chinese lady.
