Tilapia Farming in Cayo

Tilapia Farming in Cayo | Tilapia | Scoop.it
Central Farm is going to start an inland hatchery for tilapia. It will take a few years, but they're looking at a million tilapia fingerlings once it really gets going. "The Ministry of Natural Resources and Agriculture in collaboration with the Taiwan Technical Mission hosted a ground breaking ceremony for the building of a Tilapia Hatchery Center in Central Farm on Wednesday, July 17, 2013... The primary objective of this aquaculture project is to: A.) produce 1 million “all male” high quality tilapia fingerlings to assist the development of the on-growing small-scale tilapia farming operations in Belize, B.) promote the use of modern tilapia culture technology, increases the annual tilapia production, gradually decrease price in fingerling production C.) the use of alternative feed to reduce commercial feed cost by 30-35% and to supplement the meat protein intake to families in rural areas through improved tilapia production in the region."
