|My Boyfriend's Aunt Frying Tilapia for Us|
If you are interesting in trying your hand at starting your own Costa Rica Tilapia Farm you can find aquaponics supplies at Pachamama located in San Jose or Jaco. Or, you can try it the way my boyfriend's uncle did it, and just create your own rustic farming pools. He uses cement slabs, PVC piping, netting and his water source is the local stream that intersects his property. Tilapia require a steady supply of constantly flowing fresh water. If the water is not continually flowing, I've been told that the fish will die. A Costa Rica Tilapia farm will require daily attention, whether that be you as the business owner, or having to hire a helper. I've also been told that Tilapia need to be fed 3 times a day like clockwork in order to survive and thrive.
