Research & Development

One  key factor for us to be a successful organization in the ornamental fish market is that we have the advantage of getting our foreign guppy fish from direct suppliers. These guppy fish will be first received by the arrival section. Here our team of experts from the research and development will analyse each of the guppy fish in every aspect we go as far as examining them on a microscopic level for any diseases.

What makes our stock never run out and provide a steady flow of supply is our replacement programme which will be explained down below

Note the actual process may vary:

For instance a brood stock of guppy fish, the ratio of 100 : 35 female to male is reared in a 8 ft x 4 ft breeding tank. An average female of the common guppy fish variety produces 2.25 guppy fries per day. Therefore we can accumulate an approximate of 200 guppy fries on a daily basis from one tank. These guppy fries will be brought to the nursery and kept for 20 - 21 days and so on following the same procedure to form a new brood stock. 

 

This procedure is a scaled down version of the original process and our research and development team has managed to replicate this sensitive cycle on a large scale by occupying more land area, and smooth out obstacles that we have faced to make this a superior viable technique for ever lasting supply of guppy fish.

Another accomplishment achieved by our excellent research and development department is the mastering the conditioning method of each fish species. What this does is that it drastically reduces the mortality range of the ornamental fish when they are being transported. Here's how it is done :​

 

Conditioning

Before shipping any ornamental fish they have to be conditioned. What conditioning does is that it is a strengthening process for the fish which are ready to be shipped to be able to bear the stress of travelling. The fish will first go through a purging period , where the fish will not be fed for 2-4 days according to the fish variety this is done to reduce the organic compression when packaging the fish so that the ammonia level in the water and sewage does not make it will help to travel the fish happily and healthily, this process ensures that the fish has a high chance of survival through the transportation. The pathologist will decide the correct purging period depending of the species that needs to be shipped so that they can be conditioned effectively.

This has proven to be very beneficial to maintain happy customer relationships with Harith Fish Farm and reduce the costs of the Farm of returned products which fall under the category of dead stock which cannot be resold or recovered. This process is put into place to eliminate the cost of these returned shipments, our team is constantly working to improve these type of procedures and perfect them.
