Hello everyone, it’s a beautiful day once again, and I’m thrilled to welcome you back to Dexter’s World Channel. Our farm has seen tremendous growth and improvement since we embarked on this journey. Most recently, we’ve made significant strides in enhancing our pond’s ecosystem, making it a deeper and more hospitable environment for our aquatic pets.
Our geese, ducks, and African hito have adapted wonderfully to the changes, enjoying the cool and deep waters of our newly improved pond. Today, I’m particularly excited to share our latest milestone – the harvest of our tilapia.
The Thriving Tilapia and Their Unique Breeding Strategy
Our tilapia breeders have ingeniously found a way to protect their offspring from the larger fish in the pond, such as catfish, by nesting their eggs within nets. This natural breeding strategy has allowed us to witness a thriving population of tilapia in our pond. As we prepared for the harvest, the anticipation grew, knowing the significant number of tilapia waiting to be caught.
Harvesting With Care and Strategy
We waited for the cooler temperatures of late afternoon to begin our harvest, as doing so in extreme heat could stress the fish. The plan was to strategically roll the net across the pond to a designated catch basin. This method proved effective, and as we pulled the net, we could see the tilapia jumping, with ducks eagerly waiting nearby, hoping for a quick snack.
The mud made the process challenging, but the effort was worth it when we saw the abundance of tilapia caught. It was an astounding sight – the sheer number of tilapia exceeded our expectations, reminding us of the pond’s potential to nurture life and provide sustenance.
The Blessing of Unexpected Success
This harvest was not only a testament to our hard work but also a pleasant surprise. The tilapia, initially not our primary focus, became a significant part of our farm’s ecosystem, contributing to its diversity. We plan to use a portion of the pond as a nursery for the tilapia, allowing them to breed safely before transferring the babies to the mud pan for further growth.
Future Plans and Gratitude
This experience has opened our eyes to new possibilities and has encouraged us to continue exploring sustainable farming practices. We aim to grow these tilapia to a size where they can be enjoyed as part of our sun restaurant’s menu, offering dishes like fried tilapia, adobo tilapia, and more.
