The photos were taken in a commercial cage farm that has 100 floating cages located in running water dams controlled by biological filters and aerators for enhancing the level of dissolved oxygen in the water. All-male red tilapia (Sanpère) is the cultured species. Seeds of red tilapia which are required for the grow-out cages are produced in the reproduction section.
The grow-out cages shown in the photos are capable to produce 120,000 market-size fish of an average weight of 500 g, totaling about 60 tons of marketed fish per year.
