KEY POINTS OF BIOFLOC FARMING ( FOR 2 TANKS )
- Requirement for the tank
- Land: 10 decimal = 4336 Sq. ft.
- Making 2 tanks of 66000 Litre Capacity.
- Establishment of pipeline for necessary water arrangement
- Air supply machine & construction
- Technical support requirement for first production
- Each tank followed 5000 seeds of 50 to 60 gram
- In 5 month fish size increase upto 500gram
- Farming will be done twice in a year that is in July and February.
- If the size of the fish in the tank is 40 to 70 grams, then its cost is
- from Rs 3 to Rs 8.
- The cost of fish farming per tank comes to maximum 75000 with all expenses for 5 months.
- It is an innovative and cost-effective technology in which toxic materials to the fish and shellfish such as Nitrate, Nitrite, Ammonia can be converted to useful product, I e., proteinaceous feed.
- It is the technology used in aquaculture system with limited or zero water exchange under high stocking density, strong aeration and biota formed by biofloc.
- The culture of Biofloc will be productive in the case of culture tanks exposed to sun.
FARMING BENEFITS ON FISHERIES
- Production is 2000 kg fish per tank are ready in 5 months.
- Selling cost of this fish is around Rs.100 to 130/- kg.
- So the total sales amount is around 20,00,00 to 2,60,000 rupees per tank.
- The total cost and profit of 2 tanks is as follows.
- 2 Tanks Total Sales Amount is = Rs.4,00,000/- to Rs.5,20,000/-
- Profit = Sales – Expenses
- = Rs.5,20,000/- – Rs.1,50,000/-
