Tilapia is a tropical fish native to Africa. There are more than 100 species of tilapia, including subspecies. Tilapia has the characteristics of fast growth, high yield, miscellaneous food, few diseases, and strong reproduction. Tilapia is an omnivorous fish. In natural conditions, the food of tilapia is mainly composed of phytoplankton, zooplankton, benthic organisms and organic debris. In the breeding conditions, tilapia can feed on various forms of artificial feed, such as powder and pellet.

Fish feed machine can make fish feed pellets, Zhengzhou Fusmar is a professional fish feed pellet machine manufacturer.

Common Bait At The Tilapia Seed Stage

When the tilapia changed from the endogenous nutrition stage to the exogenous nutrition stage, the most suitable bait is the natural plankton and plants in the water. Therefore, 7 to 10 days before broodstock or freshly hatched tilapia fall into the pond, start to apply inorganic or organic fertilizers in spawning ponds and fingerling breeding ponds. The cultivated plankton can be used as natural bait to meet various nutrition of tilapia needs. It can effectively improve the survival rate of tilapia. You can also feed egg yolk or soy milk at the same time after the tilapia reach the pond. In the later stage of fingerling breeding, the fish body gradually grows and the caliber also becomes larger. At this time, some crushed and sieved compound fish feed powder can feed to reduce the cost of egg yolk or soybean milk. You can also add egg yolk, fresh yeast, and worm meal to feed with compound feed. Which can increase the growth rate and increase the survival rate of tilapia. 

A Common Fish Feed Pellet For Adult Tilapia

The adult stage of tilapia can feed on various forms of compound fish feed pellets, in addition to plankton, benthic organisms and organic debris. At present, as the main raw material for tilapia fish feed and compound feed processing, there are cakes (bean cake, peanut cake, rapeseed cake, cottonseed cake, flax cake, sunflower seed cake, sesame cake, corn germ cake, etc. ), bran (such as wheat bran, corn hulls, sorghum bran and rice bran, etc.), cereals (such as corn, sorghum, barley, oats, and rice, etc.), grain residues (wine grains, beer grains, tofu residue, flour dregs, sugar beet dregs, etc.), animal feeds (such as fish meal, meat meal, bone meal, blood meal, and dairy products, etc.) and aquatic plant feeds ( purple-backed duckweed, bitter grass, malaysia, perennial black wheat straw, sudan grass, elephant grass and some vegetables, potatoes, etc.). Fish feed pellet machine is indispensable equipment to make fish feed pellets.

At present, the tilapia breeding process mainly based on feeding compound feed pellets, while feeding other types of feed. In order to improve the utilization rate of tilapia feed, reduce the cost of breeding, so as to obtain higher profits.
