In remote farming villages of China, fish ponds are managed with great efficiency, entirely eliminating the costs and complications seen with industrialized aquaculture. That is happening because their traditional utilizes a process of “nutrient cycling”. To fertilize their ponds and raise lots of fish, Asian villagers plant … Continue reading

Feeding Plankton, Zooplanton and Insect Larvae to Tilapia and Crawfish.

With a bucket and strainer, a fresh slurry of oxygen rich plant matter is scooped up along with zooplankton, insect eggs and larval that live in the algae tank. This is poured into the tank and meticulously consumed by fish and … Continue reading

Locally produced fish food: Grow your own plankton and zooplankton.

Here is a simple project for raising algae that is practical, as a tabletop exercise, for high school education labs. Growing in this fashion is similar to the process of high tech bioreactors and various tube systems commonly used in the biotech industry. Researchers feed algae with CO2 from combusted exhaust emissions, a method which holds great promise … Continue reading
