Catfish and Catfish Feed Ingredient Prices – Week of August 10, 2020


Don't waste your time and money. Let me help you finally make a profit from catfish farming. Click here to see how I can help.

NOTE: We are noticing a sharp increase in demand for catfish at the moment and are predicting an uptick in price of catfish in the near term — that is likely to last till December of this year or longer. Be careful. Don’t sell your catfish anyhow.

Here at Profitable Fish Farming we will be publishing a weekly update including the latest price of table size catfish as well as other catfish feed ingredients you will need for a profitable catfish farming business in Nigeria.

We have personal experience with some of these ingredients — and have used them to achieve as much as 100 percent profit in our catfish farming business. We also supply (or can connect you with suppliers for) some of the ingredients we use that we think will yield the best results. Ingredients we supply are indicated — and you can contact us if you’re interested in getting any of these ingredients from us.

    Thanks but going by your price analysis I already bought post fingerlings at 18# as against #16. I am just a new entrant looking for survival. I have pond which we built some years back in my house so I decided to use it now..Please how do I reduce cost and how do I go about sales when I am ready to sell because I have been warned that buyers cheat women.

  2. Mrs Nwaekpe
