Fish-Crayfish Farming
Which fish can be raise together with crayfish? A fish that will not use the crayfish for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
You can grow tilapia together with shrimps. There won't be any competition because the shrimp will occupy the bottom while tilapia occupy the rest of the pond. In this polyculture, the shrimp will grow faster.
I wonder how profitable crayfish farming would be. How is the yield like?
Is anyone doing this in nigeria?

yield is about 1000 pound (454kg) per acre according to this site: http://washington.ces.ncsu.edu/pond+stoc...f+crawfish. But this will depend on how well you manage the venture.
