FAQ

What is blofloc fish farming?

Biofloc fish farming technology is used to remove waste from water. This system uses set of bacteria that are good bacteria. These are probiotics that kill harmful bacteria. Thus maintaining the water quality. They have the capability to convert nitrogen in the water, into proteins. The biofloc fish farming is an intensive aquaculture system in which biofloc or bacterial floc is introduced into reinforced geomembrane lined aquaculture ponds, which convert the waste created by aquatic animals into edible mass. This edible mass is rich in protein, vitamins,  and micronutrients and act as probiotics in aquaculture. This improves the immunity of aquatic animals. In traditional aquaculture, frequent water exchange is required resulting is wastage of water and larger expenses. Biofloc fish farming offers zero water exchange.

What are the benefits of biofloc fish farming?

Following are the benefits of biofloc fish farming:

  • Improved Bio security.
  • Improved feed conversion.
  • Improved water use efficiency.
  • Increased land use efficiency.
  • Improved water quality control.
  • Reduced sensitivity to weather changes.
  • Ecofriendly culture system.
  • Limited to zero water exchange.
  • Higher productivity.
  • Reduces water pollution and spread of pathogens.
  • Cost effective feed production.
  • Reduces utilization of protein rich feed and also the cost of standard fed. 
  • Reduces the pressure on capture fisheries.

Which species are best for bioflock fish farming?

Biofloc fish farming is best for the species that can derive nutritional benefit from direct consumption of floc. The species that can tolerate high solid concentration in water and are generally are generally tolerant of poor water quality are most suitable for biofloc fish farming. All most all biofloc systems can are used to grow shrimp, tilapia or carps. Some also raise catfish in biofloc systems.

What are the euipments required in bioflock fish farming set up?

Following are the euipments required in bioflock fish farming set up:

  • Iron Frame
  • Tarpaulin Tank
  • PVC Pipe
  • Aeration Pump
  • Fittings 
  • Air Tubes
  • Air tube Connectors
  • Air stones

How to maintain floc in Biofloc fish farming?

In Biofloc fish farming it is essential to maintain 30 to 40 ml of flocs per 1000 ml of water. Decrease in amount of flocs will lead to increase in ammonia levels. If flocs  increase then water will become dense causing difficulties for the fish to breath. If the floc is reduced then add probiotics with molasses and in case of increased flocs old water can be exchanged with new water.

What is the use of probiotics in aquaculture?

Probiotics are living microbial cells. They were initially used for disease control. Use of probioticss in aquaculture has now extended to improving fish growth and reproduction through addition to the body of water or feed. Probiotics function by acting as nutrient sources, providing enzymes for better digestion, modulating the immune system of fish and increasing the immune response against pathogenic bacteria. Feeding  adequate amounts of microbes to the aquatics animals modify their gut microflora and replace harmful microbes with beneficial ones. This improves the health and growth of the fish.

Is it safe to use probiotics for fish?

Probiotics have the potential to improve immune status as well as performance of farmed fish. Most of these probiotics for fish are isolated from nature. Hence are completely safe and free of pathogenecity. While selecting probiotics for fish, it is recommended to always check for the GRAS certification.

How can we use probiotics for fish farming?

Fish Probiotics contain one or more live microorganisms, which have been introduced to improve the cultivation of aquatic organisms. Probiotics for fish can be used as a food additive added directly to the culture tank or mixed with food. These are often dosed in specific time intervals to ensure the required population of good bacteria in aqua ponds or tanks.
