Project at a Glance

  • Aquaculture is among the fastest growing segments of American agriculture and is expanding even more rapidly worldwide. Its growing popularity has stimulated interest among potential growers. The level of participation in aquaculture will depend upon a number of factors, the most important being the availability and nature of the water and land resources.
  • Each aquaculture species has specific biological requirements. Factors such as growth, health, and reproduction are directly influenced by water quality and associated influences of the land and how it is used. Options based on resources may include ornamental, recreational fishing, fee fishing, small- to large- scale commercial production, and integrated aquatic and land farming operations.
  • Ornamental fish comprise two broad categories: live-bearers and egg-layers. Live-bearers include guppies, mollies, platies and swordtails. Egg-layers include almost everything else; the major groups are barbs, tetras, gouramis, danios and cichlids. Live-bearers are grown almost exclusively in outdoor pools.Reproduction methods of egg laying fish includes egg scatterers, egg buriers, egg depositers, mouthbrooders, nest builders.
  • Ornamental fish have traditionally been fed live feed,which is often nutritionally deficient, and can act as the transmitter of diseases (parasitic, bacterial and viral) if it is not stored correctly.
  • When feeding ornamental fish in an aquarium or garden pond, consideration must be given to the differing dietary needs and habits of the different species.An intensive study of the animals and their indigenous biotopes forms the basis for developing optimal feed mixtures.
  • Antibiotics are very useful additions to any fish-health manager's toolbox, but they are only tools and not 'magic bullets.'Antibiotics, in and of themselves, do not cure a fish. Antibiotics merely control the population growth of bacteria in a fish long enough for its immune system to eliminate them.Many antibiotics commonly used for ornamental fish are sold by different companies; therefore, the percent of active ingredient will vary from product to product.
  • Indoor recycling systems offer several advantages over conventional ornamental fish production and holding facilities, including increased energy efficiency. The use of such modern system components as heat pumps and energy-efficient building materials allows producers to minimize energy expenditures.
  • Ornamental fish production for the aquarium industry is a multimillion dollar industry in the United States. Annual sales from Florida alone are estimated at over 175 million dollars in retail value. Because the vast majority of fish varieties sold originate from tropical regions of the world, in the United States, the majority of production is limited to South Florida.
  • California imports a significant number of golden shiners from other states and internally produces about 18-20 million fish annually. Wholesale prices for fish run about $50, $80, and $125 per 1000 for small, medium, and large, respectively. The wholesale price for fathead minnows is about $45 per 1000.
