Aquaculture - Tilapia

Louis Pretorius


Aquaculture is a growing interest among hobbyists, self-providers, health seekers and commercial growers alike.
The big issue, however, is always the right fauna with the right flora!

My interest started years ago with my upbringing in East London. As i kid running around in the lush coastal forests or swimming in the sea, I had one love: the love for water and everything living close-by in proximity. Thus, giving rise to the mascott of Jo's Fish Farm and Aquaculture Venture: Jo the alligator. Visit and view various video's of Jo on the facebook page Jo's Fish Farm and see how he feeds and interacts. He started as a pet and is now the feature of the Aquaculture hobby venture. Visits to schools have also been done in the past and kids really enjoy seeing Jo eating leftover fish or the like.

Creating ponds for Jo led to various large containers being empty and now used for rearing fish. This automatically led to expanding the fish and combining it with growing suitable vegetables.
