I seem to have made a cock-up of the last 2 posts

RBH

Have you ever used soya based feed? If so, how did/does it compare to fishmeal based food on both price and performance.

The food I have seen is the 32/6.

Has anyone else used it?

No sure what is the mix I'm having from the commercial feed pellet but mostly fishmeal based, i use a mix of grade A and Premium feed and my own concoction of additive booster to achieve a better FCR.

We sale a few kilos at a time for retial. I'm sure there must be large buyer in our area. We only run about 1500 fish at a time. So retail is best for us. Never have any trouble selling at retail. If I had a rai pond migth take it on a bit differently. Or ponds are vey diffeerent then most. One of the reasons, keep 0-2 on all the time.

We are now at 10,000 plants on the mushrooms, sale them locally at retail.

This thread is essentially designed to add to our collective knowledge about the Fish industry ... both for the commercial Farmer ... and the Hobby-Farm enthusiast.

So, thanks to reading one of RedBullHorn's posts ... I would like to add this Thread to our collective knowledge.

We should start producing e-books from what you are dredging up. Some can be updated as we have learnt but there is a load of stuff I had forgotten about.

Is there any differences in cultivating pha nin and tubtim? Is one harder to cultivate than the other? And are prices for them different?

I think this year I will cut back on commercial fish feed with our Pla Nin. Again following Aussie Don. only way to really find things out is give them a try. As one shoe doesn't fit all.

Cultivation is about the same, tabtim demand a bit higher price in some areas but they are not as hardy as Tilapia, you can grow them together.

Thais will not pay extra for them in the village markets so we dont bother.

An old thread to solve foul smelling from water in a tank.

Sticky Water In Fish Tank

Read through it we did a small one to hold the fish for sale. Three days is it or they die. So we just put them in wehn we have orders. Talking about Plan Nin.

We have been trying to find Cat Fish fry for sale foor about three week in hte Udon area, b no licj so far. We know a supplier tyhat we used in the past. But, he doesn't seem to be able to get any out on Bangkok these days. Lat time I ran air into the pond this time when I ge them I will not o do that and see how things work out. Since the v crotters like walking out of a pond we will fence it to keep them in. I'm also going to place a ligh about a foot above the water and try to attract bugs to cut food costs down.

Anyone lese feel like your in a big experimentw00t.gif

During the bugs season (near Monsoon period)... they contribute 5-10% of the total FCR.

Black light (UV Tube) is a must ! thumbsup.gif

RBH ... I hate to add to your workload ... but any chance of doing a separate thread on the use of the black light attracted bugs supplementing the fish food chain.

Or, if your time is limited, maybe a brief summary here?

I did some research and some said great ... some poo-pooed the idea.

Obviously it's working for you ... so if it's not a Trade Secret, care to share?
