The Analytics of Pond-Raised Catfish Farming Business

Meta-desc: The catfish farming business is profitable.  But you have to analyze the business first.

Many catfish hobbyists turn into a businessman. It is not surprising since the catfish business is quite profitable. But, it is also risky. So, you have to be careful when you decide to run the catfish farming business if you don’t want to suffer a big loss.

Before starting the catfish farming business, it is advisable to better learn what to prepare and how much the profit estimation. Keep reading and find the guide to run the catfish business so you can prevent the big loss. And you will also find the glimpse of what you must prepare and the profit you can obtain from the pond-raised catfish business:

1. The pond for the catfish
It is important to build the suitable ponds for the catfish. Good ponds that seem like their natural habitat will make them less-stressed and can grow well.

To make a pond with the height around 1.5 m and the 3 m diameters, you will spend about IDR 2.5 million (or around US$ 170), and it can accommodate around 5000 catfish. Also, don't forget to add the price of the equipment that you use to make this pond.

2. Buy the catfish seeds
Buy around 5000 catfish seeds will cost about IDR 500,000 (or US$35). Of course, you must feed the catfish, so you have to understand the cost that you must spend for the catfish.

The catfish feed per kg costs IDR 10,000 (US$ 0.71). Multiple the cost of around 400 kg of foods so you shall spend around IDR 4 million (or US$ 285).

3. The harvest of the catfish
A cycle of catfish growth goes on around 2.5 months. So, you can get around 500 kg catfish in 2.5 months (if we had 5,000 fries before). The price of one catfish is around IDR 15,000-IDR 25,000 per kg, so you just have to multiply the price with the amount of the catfish that you harvest.

After you multiply that, you can subtract it with the production cost, and you will get the number of the catfish farming business profit. It is quite easy, right?

4. The treatment and disease
Those are the analytics of the profit you will get from the pond-raised catfish business. It is quite profitable, right? But remember to pay attention to the disease because it can reduce your profit.

You shall also count the expense for the catfish treatment, like the expense that you must spend when your catfish are sick, etc. So, before they got sick, you must pay attention to the pond’s hygiene.

Remember that to get the profit from this catfish farming business, it is important to always get the update of the price, and be patient to wait for the result.
