Fish Farming: Should You Feed Your Catfish with Bread?

Should You Feed your Fish with Bread?

Though this question might sound kinda funny, but to be realistic, Bread naturally is not a kind of fish feed naturally but i assume the person that asked this question is a beginner farmer at fish farming so i will just do justice to provide an answer.

Fishes don’t eat anything that contains “salt” because a little drop of salt into the fish pond can actually kill the whole fishes within the shortest period of time.

So why would you want to kill your fishes?

So the answer is No!

Don’t ever feed bread to your Fishes, but in Ilorin there is a way we do feed bread to our fishes and it harms them not, would you like to know the procedure?


Normally we get dry and wasted bread from bread factories like Butterfeed Bakery and feed them to our fishes, naturally this breads are wasted in the factory they are not edible for humans again so all we do is get them at their hard forms and soak in water for like 3days, then it becomes very soft and start growing some algae and we all understand that this is very good for fishes as the organisms that are growing on the bread are also phytoplanktons – edible for catfish and other fishes, so by then the bread would have lose it salt effect, because with salt still in the bread, it can never grow any algae and phytoplanktons so when you see them growing, it means the effect of the salt in the bread as been neutralized.

I hope someone finds this very useful?
