Farm, is an unique fish organic farming operation is characterized by our controlled farming environment
and ‘duckweed fed tilapia’.
Tilapia best growth rates when they are fed a balanced diet that provides a
proper mix of protein, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, mineral and fiber.
The nutritional requirements are slightly different for each species and more
importantly vary with life stage.
Fry and fingerling fish require a diet higher in protein, lipids, vitamins
and minerals and lower carbohydrates
Higher protein levels when fish is developing muscle, internal organs and
bone for rapid growth.
Sub-adult fish need more calories from fat and carbohydrates for basal
metabolism and a smaller percentage of protein for growth (Table 1)
Adult fish need even less protein, however the amino acids that make up
that protein need to be available in certain ratios (Table 2)
Feed formulators must adjust protein sources to fit the desired pattern of
amino acids through the growth cycle.

requirements for tilapia

2. 0.02 - 2.0
3. 2.0 - 35
4. 35 - harvest

SUPPORT NO-KILL ANIMAL RESCUES
We are proud supports of Healthy Pets Alive Rescue & Adoption they are a non-profit, no-kill
animal rescue group. It is the only alternative, cage-free no-kill animal rescue in the area.
Some of the animals are remain with in life-long care due to age, They are fostered by residents in the surrounding
