Operation Blessing International (OBFISH) has constructed and is operating a state-of-the-art intensive tilapia hatchery in a Santo, Port Au Prince Haiti. This facility has the capacity to produce many millions of tilapia seed (fingerlings) every year on a regular basis. It is working with a white Aurea x Nilotica hybrid provided by Aquasafra, Inc., the largest tilapia hatchery in North America. We have identified our unique fish in Haiti as Tilapia Ajan. In Creole, this means “silver tilapia” noticeable by its more attractive white or silver color skin, compared to the more common all black or gray tilapia. It is a very hardy and fast growing strain for Haitian farmers to benefit.
Tilapia Ajan fingerlings are available to private farmers, NGO’s, Missions or to supply the government’s Reservoir Lake stocking programs. With a consistent supply of high quality tilapia seed, a Haitian tilapia industry has a good chance of growing to provide highly nutritious food and job creation in the aquaculture sector.
OBFISH has years of experience in shipping tilapia seed and can pack large numbers for transport over many hours to all regions of Haiti. The fish are packed in plastic bags (like a balloon) filled with 1/3 water and 2/3’s pure oxygen gas. 1000’s of fish can be packed appropriately and transported in the trunk or car seat to be taken to farms across the country.
