Golden pond fish

Fish farming, practiced in Ancient Egypt, as evidenced by the sources dated about 2000 BC, over four thousand years ago. In Mesopotamia, in temples the priests kept the fish in ponds. Fish were kept in ponds in ancient Rome and Greece.

But only in China began to engage in purposeful breeding of different breeds of fish, which we know under the name goldfish.

Goldfish is the usual subspecies of the goldfish ( Carassius auratus ). It is assumed that the subspecies living in China, was separated from the rest of toothcarps formed millions of years ago mountains. This subspecies, which is West of the Himalayas is not found, when it was developed ornamental goldfish.

In the wild this fish niceley rivers, lakes, ponds and all dents filled with water. Carp undemanding and can live in flowing and stagnant water.

How to breed fish in ponds

Pond fish farming is the breeding of commercial fish in specially adapted or constructed for this purpose reservoirs. Farms can be full (full system) or incomplete (napolnitelem). In full system retailing the fish grow from egg stage to marketable, and in breeding — pedigree producers for full-cycle hatcheries and commercial farms.

Not in full-cycle farms planting material is grown marketable fish. They are of two types. The widest form of fish farming is feeding the carp fish farm . Spring here are imported from hatcheries to fingerling of carp weighing up to 30 grams, put them in the fattening ponds,in the fall catch of marketable fish with an average weight of from 500 to 800 grams. To grow fish in feeding the economy easy and accessible to everyone farming.

In the Ukrainian rivers appeared dangerous predators

Every year commercial fish species is becoming less. Scientists warn that may soon Ukrainians can not take grandkids fishing — will catch nothing.

“Back in the thirties dried up stoked the stove”

— In recent years we have almost completely destroyed river ecosystem, — says Sergey Mezhzherin, doctor of biological Sciences, Professor Institute of Zoology. I. Schmalhausen. — In Ukraine there is a huge estuary — the sea of Azov, which was considered the most cost-effective and highly productive ecosystem. Here the fish bred naturally. About how much it was in Azov sea, says a historical example: in the area due to the lack of firewood up to the thirties of last century the house was heated by dried specimens, casting them into the furnace instead of logs. Now it seems incredible, however, the number of freshwater fish in the country (even compared to the seventies of the past century) has decreased at least thirty times. Peregorazhivanie dams of the Dnieper, Kuban, don, led to a sharp saloneni water. Now we can confidently talk about a real environmental disaster and in fact of mass death of fish in the rivers of our country.

“Every year in Ukraine disappear two rivers”

Another reason for the lack of fish in Ukraine: loss of grasslands and floodplains — the most scarce of the environment and natural resources in our territory. In addition, in recent years disappear… the river. For example, on the Kiev — Odessa highway signs with the names of small waterways exist, but they are not. They are either overgrown with weeds or completely gone underground. Continue reading
