  • Mark Powell beginner adviser said on September 26, 2012
    After reading many of these comments and questions it is quite apparent that many people are a bit lost when it comes to the ins and outs of fish farming. The first piece of advice I would offer after over 17 years working in aquaculture is get the best advice you can and LISTEN TO THOSE WHO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. Secondly, do not underestimate the costs...spend the money up front getting the advice you need first. Thirdly never stop learning or thinking you know it all, after more than 17 years I am still learning about this every day!

    I can help with a lot of these questions but this is not the forum to do this. Pisces Aquatec is a small aquaculture consultancy company based out of Australia. I have a lot of international experience both working at universities and in industry all association with aquaculture. I am happy to assist where I can, but please be advised that it is not possible to give out one size fits all advice in aquaculture as each farm is unique. Best of luck, Mark

    @Subhra Chakraborty, well, it's all depend on the kind of pond you want to construct and the topography of the land but the basic things you need to consider are: access to water either borehole or well water and river. also you will have to consider the type of ponds you want to constructs either concrete pond,or wooden pond or plastic pond or earthen pond which has to be in the swappy area. you will also have to consider the drainage channel so as not to constitute your envions. also, you have to put into consideration the number of fish(es) you intend stocking which will determine the pond diameter.

    After thorough consideration of the above mention criteria, i will suggest to start with smaller pond for easy management been a starter in the business. should you have any further question feel free to contact back.
