The Capital Simulation
This is the capital simulation for one-time harvesting, which normally takes 6 months.

Profit Simulation
100kg of seeds equals to around 8,000 tilapias. Assuming that 20% dies and cannot be harvested, then there are 80% x 8,000 = 6,400 tilapias ready to harvest.

Each tilapia weighs around 400gr on average, and if there are 6,400 tilapias, it means it total they weigh 2,560kg.

If each kilogram of tilapia is priced Rp26,000 in the market, then we get Rp26,000 x 2,560 = Rp66,560,000.

Profit = Rp66,560,000 – 28,500,000 = Rp38,060,000

Pond Maintenance
One of the most important elements of fish farming is the water condition in the fish pond. Water should be cleaned twice a week or less. Make sure that the water has enough oxygen and carbon dioxide in order for fish to breathe and plants in the pond for photosynthesis and other substances needed by tilapia to row. For the type of soil, avoid peatlands and opt for arable land. 

You can promote your product by working together with fish sellers in the market, restaurants, supermarkets, wholesalers, or middlemen. Alternatively, you can make your own tilapia-based products such as tilapia crackers or open your own commercial fishing area.
