Tilapia Sex Reversal

Welcome to my Tilapia Fish Blog.

Today, I am introducing to you a concept which has been one of the new methods of raising Tilapia Fish for commercial purposes.

Tilapia fish sex reversal is a technique for growing bigger size tilapia fishes. The problem of raising mixed sex Tilapia fishes is that female Tilapia Fish are smaller in sizes. Mixed sex Tilapia in ponds can also cause uncontrolled breeding resulting to pond overcrowding thus causing Tilapia Fish harvest of varying sizes.

If you are a serious Tilapia Fish grower, you should seriously consider Tilapia Fish sex reversal of your fingerlings. See this link for how to convert your Tilapia Fish fingerlings into all male Tilapia Fish.

Tilapia Raising Methods

Good day reader! Again, welcome to my Tilapia Fish Blog.

Today, I would be discussing the various ways of Tilapia Raising or Tilapia Raising Methods.

Actually, there are many ways of Tilapia Raising or different types of Tilapia Fish Farms. How you raise a Tilapia depends on your situation or purpose. The Tilapia Raising or Tilapia Fish Farm types are the following:

1. Tilapia Pond in your own backyard - this is small scale Tilapia Fish Farming or Tilapia Raising Method. This would be beneficial for rural families who would want to augment their incomes. For more information on this type of Tilapia Fish Farming check out Raising Tilapia in Your Backyard.

2. Tilapia Fish Tank culture - this is used for Tilapia Fish Farming in high density. High density Tilapia Fish Farming is possible since tilapia can survive high density aquaculture as long as you keep water quality high. Other information on Tilapia Fish Tank Culture can be found here.

3. Tilapia in Natural Bodies of Water - this can be done by creating a net or bamboo cage on lakes or rivers. This Tilapia Fish Farming method is capital extensive and may encounter resistance from other folks who see this method as infringing on others rights to have free access on natural bodies of water because you restrict a portion of that water body for your own use.
