Tilapia culture is now very easy, simple and organic. Within 3-3.5 months from the dispersal of fingerlings to harvest, Tilapia culture with the Philippine Atovi Technology involves zero-water exchange (just add water due to evaporation), no aerators, keeping the water quality safe and conducive for fish growth by maintaining sufficient dissolved oxygen supply for higher livability and higher production. Fish meat is free from traces of hormone, heavy metals, making it safer to eat.
DOSAGE FOR FEEDS:
Mix 1 tablespoon of Atovi powder (10 grams Atovi) to 4 liters of water. Use cotton cloth to filter. The filtrates may be safely fed to them. After straining the mixture, transfer it to a hand sprayer and apply to commercial feeds or any other form of meal before feeding. Do this regularly before feeding time to boost their immune system and help them grow fast.
DOSAGE FOR WATER IN FISH POND:
For every hectare of fishpond, apply 1 kilo of Atovi powder. Procedure: Mix 1 kilo Atovi to a drum of water (160-200 liters), and apply to the whole of fishpond. Apply Atovi weekly at least for the first two months of culture to be assured of good quality of water, maintenance of “dissolved oxygen” and to make sure that water is free from pollution, toxins, chemicals, bacteria, hydrogen sulfide and other problems. Besides, Atovi helps in the proliferation of algae in the fishpond, which serves as natural food for them. It is best to start applying Atovi during pond preparation before stocking.
Note: Sea water cannot be applied with Atovi. The feeds or meal given to them can be applied with the technology.
