The different prices of fish floaten feeds in Nigeria depends on their protein contents. Some have 35% protein, some 45% etc. There are also different sizes. There are Coppens, 0.5 mm, 1 mm, 2 mm, 3 mm, 4 mm, 5 mm and 6 mm. The size of feed you give to your fish depends on the size/age of the fish, In Nigeria, the current price of coppens fish feed is ₦8000. There are Top Fish Feed, Aller Fish Feed, Blue Crown Fish Feed, Zeigler Fish Feed etc. These fish feeds can be bought from fish feed stores or any veterinary shops across the country. The different fish feed brands have their different prices. To be honest, fish floaten feed are very expensive therefore before going into fish farming, it’s good you know the quantity of feed a fish consumes to get to one kg so that you’ll have a nice budget and not run into debt along the process. A fish consumes an average of 800 grams of fish feed before is gets to 1 kg. Some fish eat only 600 grams to get to a kilogram and above while some 700 but the average feed consumes by a fish to get to a kg is 800 grams. This means if you multiply 800 grams by the number of fish in your farm or the number of fish you intend to stock, you’ll surely know the total quantity of feed required to raise your fish from hatchings to adult fish. This means that in order to feed 1000 fish to a weight of 1 kg and above, you’ll need 800 x 1000 which is 800,000 grams which is also equivalent to 800 kg. This implies that, you’ll need approximately 67 bags of fish feed after they must have passed the coppens stage to to achieve 1 kg and above.
Feeding Fish with maggots
Maggots can be used to reduce the cost of feeding fish. Maggots are very rich in protein and can be used as supplements as fish feed and poultry feed production. Feeding fishes with maggots helps enhance their growth level because of the high protein contents of maggots. Production of maggots is very easy, if you drop a rotten animal or animal droppings, maggots can be formed and produced easily. But the maggots produced with such methods might either not be enough or are very difficult in harvesting. It requires an expert who knows how to harvest maggots in bulk to teach you how to do it. Besides that, there are a few good eBooks from amazon you can actually read and Do it yourself. The best I’ve come across is Maggots as Suppliments for Fish Feed and Poultry Feed Production by Mathew Okara. See also Price List of Poultry feeds in Nigeria
