Choice of Breed
I have heard the saying that catfish are catfish (meaning all have the same potential growth and development). Experimental trials have proven this assumption wrong! Though best managerial practices are expected in order to get the best in whatever breed of choice the performance of quality will still outshine the less quality under the same treatment.
Making a careful selection of quality breeds is a must for the success and growth of the first. The quality breed is the bedrock of a successful catfish business.
Guide to Quality Breed Selection.
- Buy your seed from a reputable and trusted breeder.
