Snail Farming Feasibility Study
In snail farming there are some key areas that must be put in place. This key areas or factors must be considered very carefully in setting up your snail farm. One of the factors to be considered is the environment. The environment for snail farming must be conducive so whether you are raising them at your backyard or not the temperature must be moderate.
Snails do well in a high humidity and quiet environment. If the temperature is high they are most likely to go into aestivation and they go into their shell when the temperature is too low. In setting up the snail farm, the wind must also be considered. High wind will make the snail to dry up. The farm must be protected from high wind and how humidity.
Capital – The capital needed for snail farming is not huge. This business is not capital intensive. You can start small and then grown your small scale snail farming business into a large scale. Whichever way you want to start, do well to get a comprehensive business plan and a feasibility study to help you.
Pest free – In setting up your snail farm, it should be free from pest and predators. This is also very important. Snails are fragile and they should be in a safe place away from snakes, rats, lizards, centipedes, and so on.
Housing – There are different housing system for snail farming. Whether its large scale snail farming or small scale, this housing system will help you get the best out from the snail farming business. Snail housing systems are; Intensive system, Semi Intensive system, and Extensive system.
Intensive system – This is where the farmer solely provides the feeds for the snail. It is an enclosed system or controlled environment. Examples of intensive system are greenhouses, trench pens, plastic tunnel houses, hutch boxes, car tires, etc.
Semi Intensive System – The snail eggs are left to hatch in a controlled environment for 2 months. After then they are taken to an open field.
Extensive System – This is known as free range grazing where the snails are left to move about a certain area.
In all of this system, the place must be good and conducive for the snails as stated earlier. It must be secured. The snail can escape so extra attention should be taken to ensure all possible holes and escape routes are covered.
Species of Snail
There are three major species of Snail reared in Nigeria due to commercial value and they are, Achatina Achatina (AA), and Achatina Fulica (AF) and Achatina Marginata (AM).
i. Achatina Achatina (AA) Snail has It has a tiger shaped shell, the sharp tail end like AF and it can survive in a more humid environment unlike the Archatina Marginata (AM) specie.
The Achatina Fulica (AF) snail also known as the Garden Snail has a sharp just like tail end like the Achatina Achatina specie. This is the smallest of all the three African giant species. Although it has a low market patronage because of its small sizes but it lays between 200 to 500 eggs in a clutch and can produce up to 3 to 4 clutches a year.
ii. Archatina Marginata (AM) snail specie, is the biggest of the three species, it sells very fast in the market. Archatina Marginata specie is most sought for in Nigeria and because of that it has market acceptability more than the other two species
Archatina Marginata Snail specie usually take a period of 21 to 32 days to hatch its eggs and they are harder and bigger compared to other species of snails. It takes about 8 to 9 months before the AM reaches point of laying eggs.
The location and environment of your snail farm is very important, the environment best suited for snail farm is a plain low site.
This site should not be downhill to prevent too much wind from coming in because too much wind would dehydrate the snails.
Snail love balanced soil that is not too dry, they can not be reared on concrete floor, so the best floor is a moist floor, one that is not too dry or too waterlogged either.
3. Types of Soil
Snails habitat is the soil because it contains some component and chemical substances that it requires to survive but not all soils are suitable for Snail farming.
The soil is a very important factor in Snail farming because Snails lays eggs on the soil, drink water out of the soil, so the survival of the Snail is mostly dependent of the soil.
4. Snail Feeding
Snails can feed on anything, they can feed on leaves to fruits such as pawpaw, mangoes, banana, tomatoes, pears, they can also feed on cassava leaves, cabbage, coco-yam leaves etc
