Choosing different fishes to your pond

commercial fish ponds

Fish is an excellent source of protein and omega-3. Omega-3 has fatty acids that are good for your heart and helps in lowering down blood cholesterol level. If your passion is raising fish, why not make it into a profitable income. The first step that needs to be done is building a fish pond. A lot of people are thwarted by a wrong perception. Yes, it can be hard but if you know how to build one, you can do it with proper planning and a lot of research. Also, there are a lot of professionals who can do the job for you easily. With a bit of research and asking questions here and there, you should be able to meet the right contractors to do the job. When starting a commercial fish pond you need to consider the nature of the fish you are going to raise. Make sure that the fish you plan to raise are not going to kill each other right off and should be edible. It is highly encouraged that before you start any business venture learn as much as you can about the fish you are raising and the business side of the fish farming. Here are the following factors that need to be done when starting a fish pond for commercial use.

Step 1: Business plan Create a business plan for your fish farming venture. You can do a feasibility study to learn supply and demand in your local community. You can contact restaurant owners and get information about their needs. Some people would prefer locally grown fish than the organic ones. You might also be interested in getting paid by letting customers fish on your pond. Or you can also sell the fish, it all depends on what your passion is.

Step 2. Legalities, since this is a business, you may need to conform to the business regulation in your community. You can run a business under an assumed name if you register your business and you will also be required to buy a business license. Step 3. Site selection After being able to set the business side of fish farming, next is the site selection. In this part, you need to have enough space to accommodate your fish pond needs. The ideal area for your fish pond should be around half an acre and six feet deep over at least a quarter of its total surface area. It is also great if the pond is built in a well-banked gully. Watershed is needed in fish farms. Again, the description above is the ideal set up of a fish pond. It’s likely that you will have the perfect site for your pond. However, you can find ways on how to be creative when building a pond. After locating the area, you need to check out if the dirt can hold on to water. You can do this by digging a hole and pouring water on it. The longer it takes for the water to seep into the soil, the better. If your land area is not good for building a pond, you can look for ways to make it suitable. You can place materials such as plastic or old tires to hold the water from being sucked into the ground.

Place wetland plants in your pond. Some fish eat wetland plants. However, it is totally according to your business plan. If your area is located in a place where water is hard to find, you can rent or borrow a bunch of irrigation pipe to fill the pond. As long as you love or desire what you are doing, you can always find a way. Fish pond leakage is a serious problem but very easy to take care of. You can even prevent it. By studying the soil where your fish pond is going to be built, you can figure out if it needs additional construction to prevent water from escaping. If the property is made up of mostly clay soil, then a leakage is not going to be a problem. But if it is sandy or rocky, then you can build a trench. Professional fish pond makers know how to do it. Building a pond may require skills and enough knowledge for it to be successful. However, if you want professional results, you can always choose to call a contractor. At Evergreen, we offer fish pond services all at affordable pricing.

Step 4. Buy the necessary equipment needed for the fish pond. You will need equipment that will feed the fish on a regular basis. Another important device is a machine that can measure the temperature of the water.

Step 5. Buy the fish stock you have in mind. Place the fish in the pond and begin feeding them

Step 6. Advertise, advertise, advertise. There a lot of ways now on how to promote your business. You can start advertising in your local fishing stores. Yes, building a fish pond can be overwhelming. But if you’re really set on building one, you can always find a way to make one. Nothing is too hard for a project that is well planned and researched. If you need more help don’t hesitate to call a professional.
