Fish farming in earthen ponds
It will first be necessary to identify a good site to practice fish farming and to respect some criteria :
Choice of site : it will depend on the type of fish farm
– To find water in sufficient quantity and of good quality.
– Soil type : impermeable soil (a lot of clay)
– If possible a gently sloping ground (in order to allow a total emptying of the ponds), but for this criterion one will be able to remedy it, if the ground is flat.
It will be necessary to think about the size of the pond, its fertilization, the liming, the density of fish ….. we will thus strive to present you the different stages to the construction of a fish farm, that will be able to serve as a guide.
