Snail Farming

Written By Anambra Farmers on Tuesday, 2 April 2013 | 10:52

Snail Farming in Nigeria is quite lucrative, and many Nigerians are getting into this business involving snail farming. Apart from the point that snail farm is all to easy to manage, snail farming doesn't require much technicalities as well as capital as snails can simply be picked around for that take-off. 

Snail farm is easy to setup - with little structure and minor fund. Hotels, Restaurants and other eateries are those who will constantly demand the supply. You could get orders from alot of people for the supply of snails to them at agreed times and rates and you know what that means?.. Constant cash into your pocket. The Western Africa snail called Achatina Marginata will be the most desirable specie for snail farming as a result of it's high yield volume. There are other good species but I will focus on Achatina Marginata in this blog post because, it is easy to find in Nigeria.

 Achatina-Achatina is quite good for commercialization too, because of its high yield volume. This is because on the volume of eggs it lays immediately. Each achatina lays three hundred to 500 eggs at the same time in clutches, three times per year. Therefore, if you commence a snail farm with in relation to 100 snails, in one year you'd be getting about 150.000 snails going by the amount of eggs they produces.
