Breeding fish and crayfish in the suburban area.
Breeding fish and crayfish - this idea of business logically follows from two conjugate directions - fish farming and crayfish. In addition, fishing for many - a favorite hobby. And no one counts the money spent on fishing! I'm right?
Why not combine business with pleasure - fishing and earning money, and without leaving your dacha?
The fact is that fish and crayfish get along well enough together and give a good profit! So, let's use it for the good!
Many dacha sites, from Soviet times, have been allocated to the population in places of little use for agriculture. These are junky lands - slopes, swampy terrain, lowlands.
But, quite often, suburban areas are located on the banks of streams, rivers, canals, ponds. These are reservoirs from which water is taken for irrigation. Sometimes, artesian wells were pierced for irrigation, if there were no reservoirs nearby.
If your dacha section already has a pond or it borders on your hacienda - EXCELLENT!
If there is none, you will need to dig a pond in the lowest part of the site. Depth to make not less than 1 meter, other sizes - at your discretion. Dig to the clay, compact the soil, cement.
You can cover the bottom of the future reservoir with a thick polyethylene film - it will serve with careful use for more than one year. We are considering a low-budget option? Some summer residents glue pieces from cargo car chambers - you get a reliable shell that will serve you for many years.
The only thing - in the fall of such a reservoir you need to completely remove water!
Then, we cover the upper parts of polyethylene or rubber under the ground and plant shrubs and grass around the water body - willow, cattail, reeds and other water-loving plants. A little soil should be placed in a reservoir and planted with the same cattail and reeds - they grow quickly and will serve as an ornament of the reservoir and protection for fish and crayfish.
At the bottom of the reservoir it is useful to lay stones, broken pots, pipes - these are shelters for crayfish from fish. As the crayfish shed their shell during the molting period, and at this time they become a tasty morsel for the fish.
Fill the reservoir with water. As a rule, water is not chlorinated in dachas. Is supplied from nearby reservoirs or artesian wells.
Everything, you can stock up! Carp and crucian carp very well get accustomed in small reservoirs - catch them on fishing or, in extreme cases, buy! The same applies to cancers.
How much is needed? It all depends on the volume of your pond. For 1 cubic meter of water there are, approximately, 10 - 20 fish and the same number of cancers. Here also consider! What to feed? And what do you feed fish and crayfish on fishing?
Fish should be stocked in spring, and in autumn "harvest". Surplus - relatives, neighbors in the country, etc.
But these are small volumes of products. To do such a thing seriously, you need to find a little-frequented reservoir, remove the weed from it, run carp avians, for example, and crayfish. After 3 years, "free" carp without feeding would reach a weight of 2 -3 kg, and crabs - 300 grams. Now this is sorted products!
A kilogram of carp is currently 150.0 rubles per kilogram, crayfish - up to 500 rubles. Count the profit: if you run 1000 pieces of carp and crayfish? And if more? Is it impressive?
