What do I need to know about starting catfish farms?

Catfish farms can be a fun and inexpensive way to supply your pond with fish or to use them as bait. The first thing you need to know is that you will need to have a place to put your tanks. They can go into your garage if you have room. Make sure you allow the water to get to the right temperature before you place any catfish into it. They should be going into water that is the same temperature as what you take them out of. Otherwise, the shock of the temperature change will kill them.
The next thing you need to know with catfish farms is that you will need to ensure the water has plenty of oxygen in it. Get a pump system in place to help with this. If you are going to use large tanks, you definitely need to have the pumps in place before you add any catfish to them.
