Abstract

Fish cultivation has become a worthwhile business activity, as it promotes food security and poverty eradication in developing countries; however, the feeding processes are done manually in Nigeria. Therefore, to solve the problem associated with manual feeding in aquaculture, an automated fish feeder was designed, fabricated and tested that automatically feed the feeder at a predetermined time. This eliminates the drudgery associated with manual feeding. The machine was electrically powered and had the capacity to dispense 420g of feed pellets at 90sec. The maximum shaft speed was 250rpm.
