Hi there! My name is Matt Taylor, and I’ve been a Fish Farm Technician for 12 years.
If you have questions about fish farming, the equipment used in fish farming, what breeds of fish are best suited for fish farming, automation in the processes of fish farming, I’ve got you covered.
I specialize in pisciculture, which is defined as the process of breeding and raising fish. Pisciculture falls under a broader category called aquaculture. Aquaculture is the breeding and raising of any marine animal, while pisciculture is specifically raising finned fish (like salmon).
The reason behind fish farming and pisciculture is to create a stable fish supply while leaving the wild populations alone, so we don’t overharvest them, endanger them, or disrupt their natural habitats. It also reduces waste associated with commercial fishing.
By using fish farming rather than traditional fishing methods, we create a controlled environment to grow our fish, document and prevent any adversities and keep our natural wildlife safe.
I’m proud to say that my job doesn’t endanger any wild habitats, overharvest any population, or threaten any species. By using pisciculture, we are keeping the natural rhythm of the waters and the habitats within them.
Pisciculture also creates valuable employment and income opportunities for local communities. It creates jobs and food. It can also impact the local economy because it can lower the costs of fish in the area. Pisciculture can also be used to farm enough fish to feed the hungry.
Aquaculture and pisciculture are valuable resources.
If you have questions, concerns, or you’re just curious about how this process works, feel free to reach out to me! I have 12 years of experience and the know-how when it comes to pisciculture and fish farming. I’d love to answer any questions or tell you more about the career.
Happy (fish) farming!
