Bangus Farming - Our Second Sampling

On October 25, we conducted our second sampling. Same process with the first one, but we are a little bit excited since we already have data from our first sampling and that we can now gauge our progress.

The objective again is to have a growth rate of at least 3 grams per day. It was 18 days apart so simple mathematics:

Bangus Farming - Mortality Rate

Hi there. Like any business that you are to undertake, it entail risks. One the the many risks in this business is death of a fingerling. It is very common to have deaths in a fish cage, especially during the early stages. It was determined from experiments and experiences of BFAR and other operators that the mortality rate of these fishes would reach 5% per 15,000 fingerlings.

Bangus Farming - Our First Sampling

Hello there. On October 07, 2010, we conducted our first sampling. Sampling is a process wherein we randomly select 30 Bangus Fingerlings and take it weight and determine its mean. This is a sort of monitoring to give an idea on the progress of the fishes' growth. This will also give us an idea, though not in absolute terms if our methods of feeding is experiencing wastage.

For relatively new comers, with no or little experience whatsoever, this is quite a big risk. But after some research, investigations, running through numbers and financial analysis, we eventually proceeded.

A Video of Our Bangus Fish Cage

I just want to share this video of our fishes. This was taken around 5 days after our stacking.
Just don't mind what we are talking as you may not understand it since we are talking using our native dialects.
