Fingerlings for Sale from Valmeyer FFA

Saturday, August 15, 2009


The Valmeyer FFA will begin selling tilapia fingerlings after Labor Day. We have a large supply of tilapia fingerlings, and a limited supply of larger tilapia and feed trained bass. Last year we shipped tilapia and largemouth bass by UPS within Illinois with good success. We are selling 100 fingerling tilapia 1-2” fish for $65 which includes shipping costs. If you would like to pick up the fish in Valmeyer, they will cost $50 per hundred. 
We do have some feed trained largemouth bass that are 1-3" for $75 per hundred and must be picked up. They don’t seem to ship UPS with nearly as well a success rate as tilapia. We do have a limited number of larger tilapia, however they are also more difficult to ship and will be priced according to size. We would like to move as many orders as possible in September and October, but we will sell fingerlings until our supply is depleted. To avoid problems with IDNR, please make sure you have an aquaculture permit and tilapia letter. I will need the number from your permit.  Our IDNR contact person is Steve Schults - 309-968-7531. To place an order, please contact Howard Heavner at 618-935-2100 (ext 102) or email at [email protected]. You are always more than welcome to stop by and visit our facilities located about 30 miles south of St.Louis.
