Monosex Tilapia Fry

Farm Gate Sales:

The reverse sex of 1 “tilapia (over 99% male), of all strains, is available year round, but the demand is high and guests must reserve fish well in advance. Generally poorly supplied from May to July due to lower egg production and from December to February due to the cold temperature that affects the growth and survival of fry.Red tilapia is particularly affected during the cold season and Customers should consider getting rid of fish during the late rainy season from September to November when frying is very high. Nam Sai Farms sometimes has a price reduction during this period to encourage farmers to clean up stocks. Large numbers of fry are often also available from March to April, as demand may be low due to water shortage.

Farm prices are provided in the table. They may be modified due to the reasons mentioned above. In case there is a shortage of frying, a queuing system is used depending on the date a customer puts in order and the size of the order (small orders are cleared faster) . Agents (any person or company that buys 500,000 fish within 6 months) must not order fish in advance, as they will allocate a quota based on their needs for that month. 70% of the output is generally allocated to the agents and the remaining 30% is sold directly to the farmers.

1 “fries are packed at 1,000 fish per bag plus an additional 5% to allow for any mortality. A free bag is given for every 50 purchases. Fish are starved before packing to ensure that the water in the bags remains clean and that ammonia is not a problem. Fish can be picked up in the morning from 8:00 to 10:00 or in the afternoon from 13:00 to 15:00. Mid-day fish transport is not recommended, especially if the air temperature is very high, as significant mortality may occur. The use of a collection liner and the covering of fish with wet bags is advisable to keep the temperature down. Up to 310 bags can be carried in a 1-tone pickup truck with high sides (“taew song”). Alternatively, Nam Sai can send fish by air (see transport) to customers located in the north and south of the country.

For customers located at 7 hours or more in Nam Sai, the risk of cargo mortality during transport is higher than for local customers. Nam Sai has a challenge test that can identify the strongest fish suitable for these destinations. If you are more than 7 hours away from Nam Sai Farm, ask for a provocation test on your fish if you have not already done so. Nam Sai will provide new fry to cover losses or refund money to customers who suffer significant mortality during transport due to poor quality fish. Clients should keep all dead fish in formalin and should report all dead fish as soon as possible to our sales staff.

Although most fries are sold at 1 “(0.25 g), there are also larger sizes available from time to time (0.5, 1.0, 2.0 g) and can be They are sold at a slightly higher price and are packed at 200 to 800 fish per bag depending on the size.

The payment for the fish can be made by bank transfer (bring a cache as proof of payment), in cash or by check.

Many customers learn about fish insurance in transportation, but unfortunately there are no insurance companies willing to insure live fish at this time. Nam Sai can only do his best to make the fish ideal (not too big) and of quality so that the fish arrive in good condition. The biggest risk is due to the delay of the airlines and most airlines commit themselves if they are at fault. It is important that a qualified veterinarian and an airline representative be there to inspect the delayed fish in case a flight is delayed to such an extent that high mortality is expected.

A health certificate is provided, at cost, to all customers. This involves sending a fish sample to the Aquatic Animal Health Research Institute in Bangkok. If no pathogenic pathogen is found, a health certificate is issued. Nam Sai recommends that customers take further precautions against the transfer of external parasites by bathing with potassium permanganate for 15-30 minutes at a concentration of 10 ppm. This can be done on arrival or later if the fish is quarantined.
