FRP demand fish feeder

The feeder is 30 lit capacity, which can hold 10 kg of pelleted feed (depends on the shape and size of the feed particles) with feed platform and protecting cover against rain. The feeder is suspended from MS pipe stand with the activating mechanism extending into the water through the conical portion of the hopper. The developed system would reduce the feed loss upto 15%, maintaining the appropriate water quality. In one acre pond area upto 6 no's feeders (based on biomass of fish) are required to deliver feed.
