    Good morning. can you link me to a buyer of grow out catfish. Regards


    I must commend the great job you are you doing on the platform. I feed my fish with a combination of Skretting and Ecofloat feeds raising them from Juveline to 1kg in about 5 months. My average cost of feed per kg comes to about N300 with FCR of about 1.3. The profit margin is not bad but I believe it can be better.

    I was advisde to buy raw material and mill my feeds at least for the last one or two months of the cycle.

    I am quite sceptical about the quality of the material and the priscribed formulae.

    What is your take on this? Can I get the quality raw material from you?

    Thank you.
