How is pearl farming done?
Pearl farming is often done in large ponds, lakes and dams. But if you cultivate pearls in a new technology and professional way, then you can start with a small tank. Especially through RAS. Water is recirculated through this system.
Ammonia filtration and nitrite filtration are all used to keep the water clean. Things can be taken up to a big level by starting from a small level. Oysters can be given any kind of nutrition. For which High Nutrition can be used.
Air pumps and many other needy pumps are installed in this. This system is run for 2 hours in the morning and 1 to 2 hours in the evening and 1 hour in the afternoon. In this, the temperature is maintained according to the summer and winter, like it is done in the aquarium. If you want to do it on a small scale, then this farming can be started by planting only 2 tanks. Where 100 oysters can be kept. This can prove to be quite profitable. But for this quality pearls have to be made. Which is much easier than the old methods.
