Success Stories: Fish Farm In Lagos Nigeria

It takes between 4-6 months for the African catfish to reach table size and this time frame depends on the adopted culture system.

The more intensive (feeding, water quality optimization and stock selection) the shorter the culture period.

Here is an entrepreneur from Lagos Nigeria amazed at what he has been able to achieve within so few months.

It appears that he could even achieve more if he really looks after the welfare of the fish as the fish appear too cramped.... but a good start neverthelesss!

  1. Good stuff!!! Great video. We often hear about the African horror stories but seeing success that we should be able to replicate is amazing.!

  2. I could smell all the money seeing this fishes. Just wondering how many this guy has got in this pond?

  3. This is the least Africa has got. Just that horror stories sell faster and that’s what everyone wants to hear. Africa is blessed with so much of natural resources.

    It will be good if we can get the contact information of this farmer, so that starters can get training from him. Thanks.

  4. Hi Tomi,

    We have sent the producer of the video a mail to see if s/he wil be interested in giving some training. we hope to hear from her soon. Hopefully it will be good news.

    please can somebody help me with the name of the fast growing catfish in Nigeria under good feeding management. Under 4-6 month? Thanks

    • I believe the catfish that you are after is the clarias garipinus which is Nigeria’s indegenous catfish. It grows fast and it is easily bread especially with the thai species (Clarius Macrocephalus).
