FISHERY BUSINESS / STEPS TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL HATCHERY

STEP 1: Get your Brooke stock( adults male and female fish). You can use a fish of 12 months and above. NOTE: one female fish can produce 30,000 eggs.
STEP 2: Prepare your pond and wash thoroughly because of disease. Fill the ponds with water (a good PH water), and spread your clean net on the surface.
STEP 3: Inject the female fish with a certain measurement of an ovaprim (a liquid injection). Note :a certain measurement is given based on the the weight of the female fish.
STEP 4:Leave the female fish for about 8-10 hours.
STEP 5: Take the male fish and bisect the lower part. Take out the sperm, fill a cup with a salt solution. (not too much of salt). Put the sperm inside the solution.
STEP 6: Prepare another salt solution in a cup for washing off the sperm mixed with the egg.
STEP 7:Hold the female fish and squeeze out the eggs into another bowl.
STEP 8; After squeezing the eggs out, wash the sperm with the salt solution prepared earlier. Mix gently with the eggs.
STEP 9:then spread out the eggs on net in the ponds and cover
STEP 10:Wait for 24 hours. Check your ponds a and the eggs are hatch.
NOTE :prepare an extra pond for transfer of the nets. Not all will hatch after 24 hours.
