• EARTHEN PONDS
• CONCRETE PONDS
• MOBILE FISH POND SYSTEMS
• CAGE AND PEN CULTURE SYSTEMS
Earthen pond system is the oldest form of fish culture system in Nigeria. The system involves the development of ponds in land with close proximity to a water body or along the course of a gentle flowing stream or spring or the excavation (creation of a cavity or void) of a marked portion of land where water level is close to the ground surface.
Constructing Earthen Fish Pond
Concrete ponds are made of both vibrated hollow blocks filled with concrete mix or with re-enforced concrete slabs. It can be of varying sizes and shapes. This production system is common in urban cities particularly where land is not available or suitable for earthen pond construction In this system water flows through the pond to refresh it and allowed to run into the drains or suitable soak-away.

MOBILE FISH POND SYSTEMS
Farmers interested in fish farming and do not have land, or live in rented apartments can use this system for fish culture. The system is made of wood or Plastics.

CAGE AND PEN CULTURE SYSTEM
This is a relatively new method of fish production, though something close to it is being practised by the artisanal fishermen (a method called “ACADJA”). Cage and pen systems are located in natural water bodies like streams, rivers and lagoon networks.
