from early construction to packed Tilapia Fillets

This Tilapia fish farm is vertically-integrated, including: owning brood stock and producing fry, growing fish to market size of 900 g, and processing fish into fresh skinless boneless fillets, on site. Fillets are air freighted daily to Miami.

The project is based on earthen ponds with mechanical aeration, and minimal  pumping from the river for compensation against seepage and evaporation losses. The design of the Tilapia Farm is based on ‘green-water’ re-circulation, through 'green-water' reservoir.
