Experiences of raising silver pomfret
Merely raising the silver pomfret, fish raisers in Khanh Hoa each year earned hundreds of million dong.

The yellow fin - silver pomfret farming has advantages in comparison with other fishes because the breeding sources are locally produced, with the price of 5,000-6,000 dong per fish; the fish has a high resistance, low loss rate, and easy to feed, it is feeding with industrial bran, so the water source is not contaminated.

Annually fish stocking is released into the farming pond from 35,000-37,000 units, after 6-7 months of raising, the fish ready for harvest, in size of 0.5-0.6 kilo per fish, and is sold for 110,000 120,000 dong per fish; except the cost - interests remains 300 million dong each year.

There are 2 forms of  pomfret farming: breeding cage or breeding in land ponds with the water source leads directly from the sea. The appropriate deep water is about 5-6 meters, temperature from 28-30 0 C.

To help the fish grow well, raisers should feed small fishes 3 times per day, and 2 times for big fishes. The cage should be clean every 7-10 days. And remember not to use junk fishes for feeding because it can lead to contaminated water resource.
