Malaysia: Strong demand for ornamentals


Courtesy of Aeration Industries International (AII)

The ornamental fish cultured at this Malaysian farm are exported primarily to the U.S.A. The average stocking rate in the 100 ponds of varying size is 10,000 pieces. Survival is 70 to 80 percent. Factors such as size, color and species set the ornamental’s value. Colorful males are worth more money and in greater demand.

This farmer depends on the AIRE-O2® aerator’s good oxygen transfer and strong circulation to keep his fish strong and healthy. Business has been good. He plans an expansion project growing banana prawn, Penaeus merguiensis , and plans to use, ofcourse, AIRE-O2® aerators! For more information, contact Aeration Industries International.
