    my father is operating a fishpond for more than two decades....usually one to two hectares ang size ng isang pond...it is located in panguil bay, lanao del norte, mindanao...mostly crabs and prawns ang pinapalaki....every three months ang harvesting...ung feeds namn kinukuha lng namn sa dagat---a kind of seashell that looks like tahong but a little bit smaller.....ung mga crablets at prawnlets namn kinukuha namin sa bureau of fisheries....tapos meron na ready buyer from manila tuwing harvesting....

  • depende yan lonely planet, kung meron ka na ba ready-made pond preferable along a creek or river, or bibili ka pa lang lupa tapos papa-develop mo papahukay mo pa that would entail a huge amount of money (we're talking by the millions). Pero kung may ready made na mas maganda, suppliers na lang ng bangus or tilapia fry kelangan mo.

    Ang iba nagrerent na lang ng pond tapos nagbbreed na lang sila milkfish or tilapia (2-3mos harvesting)  or prawn (about 6mos or more time harvesting). Depende rin ang cost kung Ano ba plano mo palakihin bangus,tilapia, or prawn. Bangus and tilapia mas lesser ang cost of capital and mas "safe" palakihin kesa prawns which is more expensive capital, riskier to breed (kasi marami namamatay) pero definitely more profitable.

  • I guess..like in any business..location is very important..in this case..location of your pond. The source of water is very important. Madali kasi makakuha ng mga sakit and other problems sa mga fishponds na malapit lang sa populated areas.

    My father in law engaged with it a few times before..but it was a hit and miss affair. He rented a fishpen for 3 years...success on the first 2 years..then disaster on the last.

    There are many factors involve...kaya its better to be hands-on..mahirap ipagkatiwala. dami pwede pangdaraya na pwede mangyari.

  • im still seeking for a land to rent..actually nasa isip ko pa lang magkaron ng ganitong business. I havent have a land yet and my capital is around 330k.I know that is not much thats why I am asking how much would be the estimate starting capital as for this kind of business so I can prepare and save for the needed amount.how much is the rent for the land in terms of hectares somewhere in bulacan?Does any one know? Kasi Ive heard that  a lot of people are doing their fishpond business in that place and it is very near manila where my parents live.Kasi Im planning to let my father run the business in the future coz im working abroad.i really dont know anyone personally that is managing this kind of industry that is why Im opt to hear some insights to people who have experience dealing with it.Thanks to those who replied to this thread.It is very much appreciated.

    pag sau na ung pond, mas maganda...usually sa amin pag magdedevelop ka ng pond nasa 500k ang isang hectare....pero pag magrerent ka 15k per year sa bandang amin (sobrang mura). s0:

    pond rental: 15k/yr
    prawnlets: 20k  ( 25 cents/prawnlets)
    feeds: 10k(for three months)
    caretaker: 10% of the net income

    dati rati milyon kinikita ng erpat ko sa isang taon....noong kapanahunan ng el ninyo....ngaun four years nang palaging lugi...swerte na kung magbreak even....eto lang kac alam ng erpat ko pagkakitaan kaya di nya maiwan....ang ending----hingi ng hingi pangpuhuman sa anak na ofw---at ako yun....kainis ubos na ipon ko,,,,,

  • ^ here i am again. Pasensya na sa enthusiasm ko, excited lang ako magkwento sa fishpond namin.

    yup, our prawns presumably grow slower because we are mixing it with the milkfish in a semi-intensive breeding pond(diversification). We prefer the pond ("Hukay lupa") as compared to Cage because aside from the possibility of "diversifying" your products, you can also "control" the environment more as to the salinity (brackish water), pH, and the oxygenation of the water. Besides sa amin naman ang pond so bawas expenses din. May mga katabi rin kami ponds na nirerentahan namin from time to time if the need arises. Ang bilihan ng ready pond/hectare ngayon doon sa amin e around 500k/ha lang. Mura pa sya sa ngayon. We do harvest about 4 x a year sa bangus and about 2x a year for the prawns.

    As to the culturing our own fishlings and prawnlets, unfortunately we dont have the technology to do that because that would entail expertise, more intensive care, and risk on our part so we get supplies from reliable/trustworthy breeders that has been in the industry for awhile. Aside from that, im also here abroad and i only entrust everything to my caretaker and relatives and communicate with them regularly thru videoconferencing (haha sosyal!).

    as to brokers ang kuha nila sa amin ay depende ranging from 65-85/kilo then benta nila retail around 75-100/kilo may "bidding" din kung sino pinakamataas ang offer among them. depende sa season and weather. :cool2:

    as regards kung "masarap" ang bangus namin. haha well, if i say masarap i would be very bias. So far naman palagi pinag-aagawan products namin by the "viajeros" or brokers. So judging from that, it must be masarap.

    Ngayon naman nasa abroad ako to save up additional capital for my planned venture of bangus processing/deboning for direct distribution to local markets/malls/groceries provincewide and eventually nationwide and later on possibly entering the export business. Dream "big" kumbaga. :rakenrol:

    all in all siguro kung gusto mo mag-umpisa for fishpond business with rented ponds, maybe you can start at about 500k/ha conservative estimate (eg.1.5M for a 3hectares and so on), depende sa location. Tapos ipa-rolling mo na lang ang capital.

    hth.

    teka? paano ka malulugi sa ganyan? biruin mo per year 15K rent + 40k feeds + 20k fishlings =75k/year.
    para maka-break even ang kailangan mo lang is around 1 ton a year  :watchuthink:

  • sabi nung ka-partner ko dati lasang LUPA yung galing sa HUKAY na LUPA.  :hihi: sa HUKAY na LUPA ang bagay talaga prawns IMHO.
    if you do still go for bangus or tilapia sa hukay na lupa make sure the taste is good.

  • ^^  :hihi:

    if you can determine the initial capital and the ROI, prepare an extra 20% to 50% of the initial capital just to make sure in case something goes wrong.

    yun sa akin talagang nasa lawa kaya floating cages. hindi naman sa hinahamak yung tilapiang that was bred in HUKAY na LUPA, masarap yung lasa nung sa amin.

    ambilis nung sa inyo... kami 5 to 6 mos.  :)

    ====================================================

    1 more thing, based on experience, it is better to culture your own fishlings and spawning pools. kaya kami nagkandahirap-hirap dahil pangit yung fishlings na nakuha namin before.


    yes! because I never said anything about bangus na lasang lupa.  :watchuthink:
