Fingerlings

We sell our excess fingerlings that are surplus to our needs. As we only use one cohort of fish at a time, and we produce three cohorts a month you can be assured that we never sell left overs, “reject” fish or slow growers.

Quite on the contrary our fingerlings are graded, weighed and counted three times before they reach a saleable age. Their age and weight are constantly monitored and evaluated and we guarantee you that our fingerlings will be in excess of 8 grams by the age of 60 days, “ahead of the curve” as we refer to them.

This way, only the best growers are kept during the grading process. This ensures even, consistent production of fast growing tilapia that will give you an even consistent harvest. Our fish are tough and disease free thanks to our closed production system. We guarantee them live for 24 hours after delivery.

Pricing starts at R3/fingerling, negotiable lower over 1,000.

If you don’t believe us we’ll give you 100 fish for free, to test drive for yourself! Contact us for more information on this offer.

We will also occasionally have quantities of larger than fingerling, i.e. juveniles available for sale. Contact us to check on availability.

Fresh tilapia

We sell our farmed tilapia at a retail price of R100/kg incl. We’ll process it into any form you like.

You can select from

  • Frozen gutted and scaled fish
  • Frozen butterflied head on or off fish (our favourite – it braais, fries and grills beautifully)
  • Frozen fillets

Test drive why tilapia is such an appealing fish to farm for yourself. If you’ve never eaten it, be ready to have your mind altered. It’s an incredibly palatable firm fleshed white fish with minimal flavour and it is absolutely delicious as a braai, fry or grill fish.

Just send us an email to orders@fish-farm.co.za and we’ll expedite the process for you.
