How to breed cancers?
In our time, the cultivation of crustaceans in industrial conditions is not very developed, because individuals have the opportunity to build a successful business in this niche.
Compared with large-scale breeding, the homethe option has a number of significant advantages. Small parties are much easier and faster to realize than large ones. Starting investments are small and quickly pay off. And yet, how to breed crayfish at home? About this further.
Conditions of detention
In order to start breeding crayfish,a personal water reservoir is necessary, the water in it can be either flowing or standing. The average depth - from one to three meters, the area of the pond - from thirty to sixty meters. The depth should be sufficient so that even in the worst frosts the reservoir does not freeze to the bottom, otherwise the crayfish will simply perish. It is desirable to have several reservoirs, this will speed up the breeding process.
Cancers live in burrows, which they dig themselves. That's why the bottom should be stony with a little sand. Ideally, it is better to make the shore clay and plant grass, this will make the conditions of keeping crayfish as close to natural as possible. Since the crayfish live in clean water, you will have to take care of the filtration system. Cancers can try to leave the "nursery" through the pipes that supply water to the pond. To prevent this from happening, protect their inputs by putting on grids. In order to prevent a major change in the microclimate of water, update it by one-third of the total volume of the reservoir once every three weeks.
Breeding and care
Now directly on how to breed crayfish. The mating season of these crustaceans falls on the autumn or the beginning of spring (once a year). Each male is capable of fertilizing four females, each of which can give offspring in thirty individuals. It is easy to calculate that in just one mating season for each previously launched cancer, you will gain an increase of about 25-30 units.
Their feeding is not difficult, enoughjust throw food into the water. It can be finely chopped meat, fish, cooked cereals or even plain bread. Cancers will find food after it settles on the bottom of the pond. A good option for feeding cancers are earthworms, since they do not affect water pollution. Periodicity of feeding - about once a week. No additional care for themselves cancers do not require.

It is necessary to take care of the sales market in advanceof its goods, which, in principle, is not particularly difficult, because the demand for crayfish restaurants, pubs, private buyers, food bases and shops is quite high.
