Over the years, we have increased our capacity substantially 22,000 with the construction of several new earthen ponds. As at now, there are fifteen (15) active ponds consisting of five (5) concrete growing ponds, three (3) Plastic Fiber tanks and seven (7) Earthen ponds. Current fish holdings amount to under 14,000 heads, with hatching operations continuing to make up the deficit.
The hatchery and processing units are key in pond stocking but also in adding value to the grow outs. Our hatchery operations have a capacity of over 30,000 fries. The processing unit has a capacity to smoke dry 250 kg of fish at once.
The sector currently contributes fewer than 5% of our total annual revenue.
As it is for the poultry, the Fish Dept is equally being fed from our feed mill.
