ABSTRACT 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.
