Bogoma – River State Nigeria – Fish breeding farm
This project deals with the design of fish farms for breeding\growing Tilapia and Catfish.
Palgey Maim carried out the general planning of the ponds, plumbing, structures, pumping facilities, etc and the detailed planning including piping, various systems, purchasing lists, etc.
The project includes:
Grow Out Tanks – 20 ponds with a volume of 100 cubic meters each at the first, and 20 ponds in the second stage – a total volume of 4,000 cubic meters.
First nursery ponds – 8 ponds with a volume of 30 cubic meters each – a total volume of 240 cubic meters.
Brood Stocks – 4 ponds with a volume of 50 cubic meters each – a total volume of 200 cubic meters.
The project is planned for a growth cycle of 950 tons of fish per year.
The water for breeding the fish is pumped river water, (2,700 cubic meters per hour), and well water, supplied to prefabricated fish ponds, produced and tested in Israel.
Many challenges had to be faced during the course of the work on this project, among them were difficult access (the project is built on an island in the river with no road access), working in high groundwater, large tidal differences, work in marshy terrain etc.”
The water from the river and the wells are pumped directly to the fish farming system, the drainage water is conducted to sedimentation pools for treatment before being returned to the river, in accordance with the level of quality standards by the local regulations.
