It's that time of the year to Pre-Order your Pond Stock.
Duckweed & Other Vegetation Control
ORDER NOW.. to hold your fish before we are sold out for the summer. We will need to know the size of your pond and the stocking density needed, typical is 40 lbs per acre. A 20% non-refundable deposit is also required at the time of your order. Delivery expected for late spring. (Delivery is $1.60 per mile one way.) We can help you with any of your questions.
Sustainable Farming and Technical Application
This is the fun part of our farm. Being a retired teacher I find much joy educating student about aquaculture and aquaponics. This is a great opportunity for student to get a hands-on education. We will either provide tours, or come to your school with presentation and QA time. If you are thinking about starting up a program at your school give us a call and see how we can lend a helping hand.
Triple B Tilapia is your Northwest Indiana stop for fresh Tilapia.
Our, family-owned, grow out farm and hatchery, is dedicated to bringing our customers the freshest all naturally grown fish.
Our Hybrid, 95% male Tilapia, will provide you with a great looking fish with a high ratio of fish weight to overall fillet weight, 45%.
You truly get more per fish than other breeds of tilapia. We specialize in wholesale live fish or on ice quantity sales and retail on ice, appointment only pickup sales.
Market weight 1 1/4- 1 1/2 lbs on average.
We also care Blue Tilapia.
If you're interested in raising your own Tilapia at home or in a small farm with quick growing, high producing Tilapia, we have available our hybrid fingerlings.
You can bypass the worries of a hatchery and go right into the grow-out stage. All of our Fingerlings are fed a high protein diet, to help jump start the growth process.
We follow many experienced leaders in the industry on methods for feeding and management for optimal growth and health.
But if you want to jump into the process of raising your own fish from start to finish, we are a certified dealer for this wonderful hybrid in breeding colonies as well.
For those of you who love to garden we have our ALL NATURAL fish fertilizer.
Good for your prized vegetables, flowers, plants and yards.
You can either purchase our liquid or soft solid variety organic compost. Both have a high quantity of nitrogen and organic fish product/food mix which are great for plant growth and health.
Our all natural mixes are in concentrated forms so you will have a product right from the farm bottled and packed ready to use. (Product will not burn your plants and is great for all year round.)

Corteva Agriscience Connects Consumers with Farmers...
INDIANAPOLIS - The Indiana State Fair and Corteva Agriscience, Agriculture Division of DowDuPont hosted us as a Featured Farmer for the day.
We are so thankful for the hospitality shown to us August 9th at the Indiana State Fair. A big thank you to Bill Root, Gearold & Heidi for being our guides. We had breakfast with the State Fair Board and had the opportunity to introduce our farm and what we do at Triple B Tilapia, followed with a little Q&A... We had the opportunity to visit the FFA Building, Habitat of Humanity project, Glass Barn, Pioneer Village, the Circus, Part of the Indiana Grown cooking show, and honored in the Parade.
During the day we had a presentation in the Glass Barn talking with visitors about Aquaponics and what it's like farming fish, which was a great interaction. Earlier in the day Channel 18 had a short interview, as well as other magazine and radio interviews that continued throughout the whole day! It was a busy day to say the least.
You can view some of our pictures and videos from the day in the link below.
Again, a big thank you to Corteva and the Indiana State Fair.
