When it comes to farming, a person usually doesn't think of farming fish. I am from the midwest and when I think of farming, I think of wheat, corn, and soybeans. Fish farming is actually a huge industry in the United States. There are two different types of farms. The first type, which is called extensive aquaculture, the fish are raised in a controlled area (usually pond like area's) and are fed food pellets as the primary food source. If you are ever passing through Missouri or Arkansas, keep an eye peeled for local fish farms. The second type of fish farming is called intensive aquaculture. This type of farming is done in a less controlled body of water and the fish are fed naturally. As you can imagine, farms use a large quantity of water every year. Most fish farms are required to have filtration systems which will allow the water to be reused. I read a story a while back about a fish farm which produced tilapia. The fish were raised in very large plastic pools, which were located in a green house. The institute created a whole ecosystem within the pool. For example, the natural algae which grew within the tank was the natural food source for the tilapia. The waste produced from the Tilapia is then used as fertilizer for natural growing plans. It's an amazing cycle! When you think of farming fish, you think of only the sell of the murrel fish in telugu as a source of income. What you don't realize is how valuable the fish waste can be for fertilizing crops. A friend of mine owned a worm farm years ago. Worm farming is actually very similar to fish farming. He sold the worms to local landfills and the waste to local farmers at the farmers market. A small bag of worm waste was actually very valuable! Some farmers also use cages to raise their fish. The fish cages are usually located in lakes or rivers. The fish are held in the cages until they reach maturity. At the time of maturity, the fish are harvested and sold. A great advantage of using cages is the fact that they can be used in many different bodies of water. As you can see, farming is much more than a person initially realizes. There are many forms of fish farming and each form brings on its own set of challenges. If you ever get a chance to visit a fish farm, I highly recommend it. They can be very educational and interesting at the same time. Anything that will get us away from the television has to be a success! Thanks for your interest!
