If you are thinking of a business to start now, I recommend you start Catfish Farming. If you are an existing farmer and you are looking to expand your farm capacity, I’d encourage you to add fish farming to your line of business.





1. Fish is Popular

Fishery products are by far the most popular animal products in the market, constituting more than 60% of the Animal protein in the Nigerian market.



2. Fish is Source of Protein

Fish is one of the highest sources of protein. It is a low-fat high-quality protein that is filled with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins such as D and B2 (riboflavin). Fish is also very rich in calcium and phosphorus and is equally a great source of minerals, such as iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium.



3. Fish Sells Quick

Fish sells faster than any other animal products in the market and is relatively cheaper than meats, making it the number one choice when it comes to affordability.



4. Fish Matures Quickly

Fish grows very fast as practices in fish farming make it possible for farmers to increase the fastness of their fish growth by giving them certain feeds, ensuring that you harvest and sell within a short period.



5. Fish Contains Omega-3

Fish is the biggest source of Omega-3 fatty acids which is extremely beneficial to the human heart; Omega-3 helps to keep our heart and brain very healthy. Since the human body doesn’t produce Omega-3 fatty acids, the only source through which we can get it is by what we eat, that is where fish comes to the rescue.



6. Fish Farming is Profitable

Fish farming is very profitable. With proper planning and good management, N3 million investment in fish farming could easily result in N4 million of pure profit within six months.



7. No Environmental Hazard

Fish farm does not cause any environmental hazard. You can set up a fish farm anywhere, including residential areas. If you have a spacious compound, you can easily set up a small fish farm within your backyard without any regulatory precaution.
