Talapia Farming …

The above images are ones that I made this past weekend at a talapia farming operation that Pam and I toured.  It was extremely interesting and without going into a long explanation of the process, these images, starting at the top are:  the fish being fed in the “growing tank”,  filtering chips,  tanks holding these filtering chips in the hatching greenhouse,  sludge removal tanks in the “growing  greenhouse” and the the water heating units to keep the warm water recycled through the “growing tank” so the temperature is maintained at a warm 75 degrees.  The names assigned are my own … I am sure that the professionals have more sophisticated names than “growing tank” and “growing greenhouse”, but those are the way I remember the guy explaining the operation.  There are many more photographs than just the ones I posted here that  explain the whole process from hatching to growing to harvesting.  I plan on returning in several months when they harvest the talapia and I will have part two at that time.  I used to get work like this several times a year, so I just wanted to show everyone that I am still available to shoot these types of jobs for any company that needs photography for their magazine, newspaper or newsletter.  If you have any questions, you can contact me at 850-449-1279.  Thanks for looking …
