|Kinwédji : Six thousand (6000) fingerlings in the ponds|
For about two (02) months now, Songhaï site in Kinwédji has received improved species of carp fish. Six thousand (6000) fingerlings from Israël are currently in the earthen ponds. After one month of rearing, the managers of the site noticed that the fingerlings responded well to the new feeding: soybean bran and maize bran, brewery waste, coppens and pellets.
This resulted to a weight of twenty (20) grammes per fingerling after only one month. The cycle of these improved species of carp is one year. After one year, the average weight per fish will be 1.5 kg according to estimates. Apart from the weight, the color and the size are the other elements that make the difference between this improved carp species and tilapias which many people mistaken for carp. They weigh only one fifty (150) to two hundred (200) grammes at the end of their seven-month cycle.
