Fish Feed Made by Locally

Fish feed can be divided into sinking fish feed and floating fish feed according to their buoyancy. In Nigeria’s fish farming industry, there is a great demand for floating fish feed. Therefore, floating fish feed extruder demand in the fish farming industry is huge. Thanks to government support and local abundant raw materials, fish feed production is a profitable business in Nigeria.

The main steps of feed production in Nigeria are as follows:

  • Collect raw materials such as corn, cowpea, peanuts, melon, potatoes, cassava, etc.
  • Clean the materials, remove impurities, and grind the raw materials into powder with a feed hammer mill.
  • The powdered raw material is put into a fish feed extruder to make feed pellets.
  • The finished pellets are cooled and dried in a cooler and dryer or in the sun, and then these pellets can be fed directly to the fish.
  • Pack feed pellets with packaging machine (optional).

In Nigeria, there are a large number of materials commonly used to make fish feed pellets. Their usage is standardized and widely accepted. Many of these products are inexpensive and available in large quantities. They are usually by-products of the agricultural industry, such as wheat bran, peanut cake and rice bran. Some are based on animals (e.g. fish meal, blood meal, shrimp meal), while others are plant-based (e.g. corn, soybean meal, cottonseed meal). Generally speaking, these materials are cheaper in Nigeria and are available all year round.
