Tilapia farming is expanding across the world because this type of fishes
can be cultured under very basic conditions and so is ideal for rural subsistence
farming, yet is amenable to more sophisticated, market-oriented culture
programmes. This therefore informed the decision to look into the operation of
tilapia farmers. The study focused on assessing the operations of tilapia farmers
in the Asuogyaman District of Ghana. The study adopted a descriptive
approach. The study relied on the census technique to source views from sixty
farmers in the district. All the sixty questionnaires were retrieved.
The study made use of frequencies in its data analysis. The study
revealed that the source of fingerlings for most of the farmers was the pond.
Majority of the farmers indicated that they were not aware of any government
assistance in raising capital. However, credit/loans were their means of raising
capital. With regards of farming systems, most of the farmers indicated that they
use the intensive farming system. It was therefore recommended stakeholders
involved in the farming should on regular basis ensure sustenance and further
investments into the production of seed/fingerlings.
