We know commercial aquaculture
Industrial sized tilapia farming uses industrial sized methods and requires industrial sized knowledge. Small aquaculture or aquaponic techniques will not work, no matter how many times you enlarge or multiply them. One of the keys to success is correctly sizing every component so that it can handle its intended job with ease. So whether that means a drum filter as big as a city bus or an oxygen generation system capable of tripling your stocking density, we can help you design a system that will produce the results that you demand.
It's all about making a profit
Commercial aquaculture comes in all shapes and sizes, from million-pounds-per-year processors, to farmers-market-sized family farms. Some operations focus on aquaponics while others are completely dedicated to tilapia farming. However, no matter what size they are or whether or not they grow vegetables, all commercial aquaculture operations share a common need to be profitable. At Lakeway Tilapia, we understand that you are in business to make money, but more significantly, we recognize all of the ways that we can help to develop and protect your profit potential.
For example, did you know that every tilapia farm produces three valuable products? Did you know that a dead tilapia, with un-usable filets, can still contribute to your bottom-line profits? Did you know that using oxygen properly can triple your yearly output without expanding the size of your ponds? Do you know how to economically treat thousands of gallons of old foul-smelling pond water back to drinking quality? Or better yet, prevent it from becoming foul-smelling in the first place? Did you know that most farmed fish, including most species of tilapia, come with hidden costs that destroy profitability or that certain grades of pure strain species can turn a profit-less farm around in less than six months? We could go on and on, but rather than that, we'll just invite you to give us a call.
Free fingerlings for commercial aquaculture
The Internet is full tilapia sellers that don't know the first thing about commercial aquaculture. They simply assume that large aquaculture operations buy their fingerlings in bulk or at some reduced retail rate, then unknowingly share their ignorance with fantastic tales of selling thousands of fingerlings to commercial tilapia farms. Well we've got a reality check for them: Commercial tilapia growers don't buy retail fingerlings. Instead, they use hatchery services, like those offered by Lakeway Tilapia, to raise and grade fingerlings on their behalf. The fingerlings already belong to the farm by way of the service agreement.
