gusto ng hubby ko, kung may makikitang magandang farm/resort sa tagaytay which yun ang priority but as of now ang meron kami raw land eh sa mindoro, kalatagan. naka pending nga yun usapan namin ng isang hotel eh, request kasi nila na maglagay kami ng restaurant dun, but malaking puhunan na yun kuya, so natatagalan tuloy ang dream farm ko. Gusto ko kasi, ang gagastusin ko sa farm eh extra money nalang namin para ndi ako manghinayang kung full narra ang mga furnitures at full stainless ang kitchen etc etc etc. as in wala kami iniisip kung mababawi namin or not ang gastos namin dito kasi not for business sya, kung sakaling after years at mag income ang farm as in self generating na sya, ang income pasok lang sa bank ndi na gagalawin. So walang guilty na mararamdaman dba.  hugs hugs

Vitarich Launches Pangasius Catfish Contract Farming
Posted by: Leo in News, Tips & Articles 2,474 Views
Poultry firm Vitarich Corp. has opened a growout opportunity for pangasius farming as pangasius is projected to hit a $ 2-billion export value in 2010 as fish has become a food alternative for meat worldwide.

With a rate of return of 10 to 20 percent over a short period of time of six months, Vitarich is optimistic of a lucrative venture in pangasius, a type of catfish. The interest in pangasius has surged as Vietnam earned $ 1 billion from pangasius’s fish fillet in 2007.

“There is increased worldwide demand for pangasius in European countries, the US, Australia and Russia. Other countries are still being developed, (and) export prices are high,” said Vitarich in a statement.

China is one of the big markets for the fish.

While the country can serve other markets as it is in the position to promote better branding compared to other countries that have deteriorating image, Vitarich officials said pangasius also has expanding local market in high-end restaurants, hotels, and fast food chains.

Thailand has similarly started expanding its pangasius fish farming in order to meet export markets in the United States. However, existing supply is not out to satisfy the big market. Malaysian catfish producers prefer to sell their catfish to the local market rather than export the products.

Vitarich has set up three schemes with pangasius farming entrepreneurs — contracts for growing, contract to buy, and contract for commercial growing.

“Investors start-up capital varies depending on whether they have the facility or not. On operation side the smallest is 5,000 fingerlings which can cost him around P400,000,” said Vitarich.

A technical assistance will be extended by Vitarich to growers. Technology transfer also involves details of distribution of fish products including fillet, live fish, frozen fish (chilled, gutted, headless), and other by-products such as trimmings, skin, and head and belly.

Under the contract growing agreement, Vitarich, which supplies fingerlings and feeds to a contract-grower, has a standard growers fee of P10 per head. Ownership of fish and feeds remains with Vitarich, but operating expenses are incurred by the grower.

While the grower pays an equity of P15 per fingerlings, he has no right to sell the fish or feeds as he will receive payment for the fish after harvest.

For the contract to buy (CTB), fingerlings and feeds will be paid by the CTB partner, and the CTB partner also owns fish and feeds. Vitarich buys at P50 per kilo the fish from the CTB partner who also has an equity of P5 per fingerlings.

“Payment is on cash-offsetting transaction. Operating expenses to be shouldered by CTB partner,” according to the contract terms.

Hi Mr. Ed Cuartero,

Yes, I believe the hammerhead shark is the same as the Pangasius. It was Bioresearch that popularized the fish for the aquarium and was the one responsible for calling it the Siamese Hammerhead shark. Most likely for its ability to bump aquarium glass head-on when frightened.

Most large freshwater fishes are actually food of the natives where it came from.

  What is contract growing?

Simply put, you grow the fish, Vitarich harvests and markets the fish.

If you think about it, contract growing is easy since we would be the one taking care of the feeds, fish, and the technical services needed. We would even market the produce. Better still, you still need little initial capital since you would be incurring expenses related to operations because the company will be shouldering the cost of feeds and fingerlings. This is exactly the kind of business small and medium-scale entrepreneurs are looking for.

How does it work?

We provide you with everything you need to start your own business and make it succeed. We provide the fingerlings feeds, technical services and other auxiliary services.

You take care of the housing, labor, power, light, and water; equipment; and other miscellaneous expenses.

Once the fishes are fully grown, you profit by the kilo. We harvest the flock and sell the fishes.

Why work with Vitarich?

First of all, we guarantee the quality and performance of our fingerlings.

From hatchery to delivery, our fingerlings would undergo proper conditioning to ensure quality before dispersal. Our technical personnel will be in the hatchery and at the farm site on the actual pangasius dispersal to inspect and ensure quality of the fry.

Second, we provide the best support possible.

We provide the best in technical support.
Our technical group is composed of highly qualified farm-trained aqua-specialists, each of whom is equipped with everything they need to help you with your needs. These specialists will be with you from the time you think about signing up and all throughout the contract growing process.

Here’s what they’ll do for you:


Assess the feasibility of the project; Assist you with pond/cage lay-out and construction, and other details that have a direct impact on the management; Provide you with regular training sessions for new growers as well as refresher courses for experienced growers; Conduct seminars on the latest advancements in the aqua industry; Be there to help you before and during the delivery of fishes; Give helpful tips on proper pond/cage management and ensure the most suitable conditions for fish acceptance; Conduct regular farm visits to supervise fish placements, assist you during dispersal, evaluate fish performance in terms of mortality, feed consumption, weight gain, etc.
Evaluate the farm’s performance after harvest and discuss with you possible improvements for better and more profitable operations.
We also provide logistics support.

Working in close coordination with the Technical Support Group is our Logistics and Support Group which is based in Marilao. Logistics and Support will handle the processing of your application; coordinate prompt feeds deliveries; expedite the release of your checks; and takes care of hauling  of final products .

To support both groups, other Departments within Vitarich are always prepared to help. In short, Vitarich has a very efficient and effective contract support system based on its long years of experience and service.

Third, you never have to worry about marketing.

Vitarich handles the marketing of your finished products. So you never have to worry about fluctuations in prices, or competing with other fish products, or where and how to sell your fishes. We take care of all that and, in the process, save you marketing-related expenses.

How do you start?

Let’s sit down and talk about it. Visit our office at Marilao today.

From FeedBlitz:

Culture of Pangasius spp
Posted by: Leo in Fisheries 148 Views
Pangasius spp is commonly called as river or silver stripped catfish, Siamese shark, sutchi catfish, or swai catfish. This fish species live in freshwater and endemic to the Mekong basin. It is a riverine catfish belonging to the members of the family Pangasidae. It exhibits fast growth when cultured given a good environment.

It is cultured due to its strong market demand, fast grower, few countries dominate the culture production, and being the 3rd most important freshwater fish group  within aquaculture sector. Pangasius is now cultured in several countries in the world like Thailand, Nepal, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Laos, Maynmar, Indonesia, and Cambodia.

Pangasius is an air-breathing fish that can tolerate low Dissolve Oxygen (DO) of the water. It can be cultured in fishponds, concrete tanks, fish cages or fish pens.

Common Cultured Pangasius:

Scientific name: Pangasius hypophthalm. English name:   Sutchi river catfish.
Scientific name: Pangasius bocourti. English name:   Bocourts catfish
Site Selection

Efficient source of water
Free from pollution
Free from any disturbance
Free from poachers
Source of electricity
Size of Culture System Pond

The ideal pond compartment is 1,600 to  2,400 sqm.
The ideal water depth is 1.5-2 meters.
Cage

The ideal size is 10×10 meters.
The ideal depth is 5 meters.
Stocking density is 15-50/m3
Pond Preparation and Management - Pond preparation is the same as general preparation forfish ponds.

Draining and sun drying. Sundry the pond until the pond bottom cracks to eliminate unwanted fish species and condition the pond.
Repairing of dikes and gates.  Dikes and gates should be repaired to avoid entry of other fish and escape of stocks.
Eliminating predators.  Predatory   fish   species   should   be eliminated  to  promote  better yield  and harvest.
Liming. Liming is done primarily to condition pond soil, since Pangasius spp. can tolerate pH ranging fro mQ.5-7.5.
Filling of water. Fill the pond with water to about 1.5m to 2m deep, to provide a wide environ merit for the stocks.
Stocking/stocking density. Pangasius spp. can be stocked at a rate of 3-15   pcs/m2depending   on   the   culture environment. Stocking should be done early morning or late afternoon. Survival rate  of Pangasius spp. is estimated to be 80-90%.
Feeding/feeding management. Pangasius can be fed with kitchen waste, rice bran or pelleted feeds (recommended for faster growth and better fish quality) at a rate of 2.5% of their average body weight (ABW) and will be adjusted bi-weekly. Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) averages to 1.5:1, which makes it a suitable for culture. Pangasius is omnivorous (eat both plants and animals) during their first year and become herbivorous for the following years.
Water management. Water is important for all fish, so optimum conditions for certain parameters of water should be the primary factor to consider in engaging  to  fish   culture.  Water  quality parameters   like   pH   (6.5-7.5),   Dissolve Oxygen (DO) (0.1 mg/l), Temperature (25-30° C), Salinity (<2 ppt) and water depth (1.5-2m). These should be maintained to get a better yield for the culture of Pangasius spp. Pangasius spp. is an air breathing fish thus, they don’t need to have a much higher DO in the water column.
Sampling. Sampling is done to monitor the growth of stocks and to compute feeds to be given to the stocks for the following days. This is also done  to  see  if the  stock  reaches   its marketable/harvestable   size.   Since Pangasius spp. is fast grower fish, sampling is mandatory.
Harvesting.  Harvesting can be done in partial (selective harvesting) or total harvesting. Pangasius spp. can be harvested for about 5-6 months of culture period. lt can reach the weight of 1-1.5 kilogram in 5-6 months of culture given the   proper   pond   management.

Nabasa ko ito sa Panorama (ng Manila Bulletin) noong Sunday:


BACKYARD FISHERY. The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) has come up with a new system of culturing Pangasius in what it calls Pyramid Tank consisting of three layers of six plastic drums. The lowest level consists of three tanks, the second consists of two tanks and the uppermost, one. The concept will be launched later this month in Quezon City. Thirty Pangasius fingerlings can be stocked in one drum. In three months of feeding with commercial feeds, the fish could already be marketable.

Pangasius is the species of choice because it is very hardy and is also a fast grower. Its meat is of high quality, too.

Speaking of Pangasius, Vitarich Corp. is processing Pangasius into various finger foods such as lumpia, longganisa and other preparations. Vitarich is now distributing Pangasius fingerlings, and is involving cooperators in producing the fish. Making Pangasius longganisa is now a source of livelihood for women members of a cooperative in Bulacan.


Available na kaya yung pyramid tanks? Magkano kaya yun? Yung fingerlings ng pangasius magkano kaya bawat isa? Sa Vitarich lang ba makakabili ng fingerlings at feeds?

Napanood ko kanina sa 24 Oras ang tungkol sa Backyard fishery project ng BFAR.

Hindi na Pyramid Tanks ang tawag nila sa 6 na drum na pinagpatong-patong...Fish Condo na ang tawag nila dito. Ayon sa balita, ang halaga nito ay P4,000 at umu-okupa lang ng 3 sqm.

Ang Pangasuis, isang uri ng catfish, ay pwede raw pakainin ng mga tira-tirang pagkain sa ating hapag-kainan (siguro kanin). Sa loob ng tatlong buwan ay maaari na raw maka-harvest na titimbang ng halos isang kilo bawat isa. Hmmmmm....

Magkano kaya naibebenta ang isang kilo ng PANGASIUS kung ibebenta direkta sa end consumers...yung hindi na dadaan sa mga Middlemen? 

May nagsabi na P200 per kilo. Presyo sa palengke na siguro ito. Magkano kaya ang presyo sa farm gate? Ayon sa Vitarich ay P50 per kilo (mababa).

Ayon sa BFAR, yung FISH CONDO (6 plastic drums) ay nakakapaglaman ng hanggang 30 piraso ng pangasius BAWAT drum..... 30 x 6 = 180.

180 piraso ng hito...kung mabubuhay lahat yan at kung sa loob ng 3 buwan ay titimbang ng isang kilo ang bawat piraso.... 180 pcs x 1 kilo = 180 kilos.

180 kilos x P50 (farm gate price) = P9000....kung mabubuhay lahat ng hito.

P4,000 ang fish condo. Magkano kaya ang fingerlings?  Magkano kaya ang feeds (kung hindi gagamit ng tira-tirang pagkain sa ating hapag-kainan)?

Iniisip ko na hindi naman kamahalan ang presyo ng fingerlings at feeds.

Kung magkano man ang puhunan ng feeds at fingerlings, mukhang mababawi ang puhunan sa unang harvest ng PANGASIUS. Kung mag-aalaga ulit ay siguradong kikita na.....kung magkano ay hindi ko alam.....depende siguro yan kung gaaano kadami ang iyong FISH CONDO.

maganda yang analysis mo bro! me kita nga dyan...hindi ko pinoproblema kung mabubuhay or hindi mga fish kasi for sure mabubuhay ko yan dahil me 100 organic ako na pwedi ilagay dyan..
...pero sa mga pinoy ano kaya lasa nito? lasang bangos din ba?
