One of the key principles of making money in any business is to provide or supply a product or service that people really need and want.


If you are lucky to find an industry where demand for the product or service is more than the supply of the product you stand a better chance of even making more profit for yourself.

Chances are that if you walk into your local fish store, supermarket or restaurant today with the intention of purchasing fish You will be sold one that has come from a land based and offshore fish farm and not one caught from traditional wild catches.

Because there is increasing recognition that fish is a healthy food, low in calories and cholesterol levels, but rich in protein has increased consumer demand in both restaurants and supermarkets. Consumption of fish products is increasing dramatically and more and more governments are encouraging their populace to eat more fish. Fish are also excellent animals to rear. They can convert more of their feed into body tissue more efficiently than most farm animals, transforming about 70 percent of their feed into flesh.

Tips & Tricks to follow....
We have taken a fresh, client-focused approach to the art and science of developing fish farming projects. We are committed to our clients and to utilizing our seasoned team of experts to deliver industry-leading examples of the state-of-the-art in aquaculture project development.

It all starts when we get that first call or email from you. Feel free to us our new contact form and questionnaire to guide you along in the questions that require answers in the early stages, or you can just give us a call.
With some basic questions answered in serious enquiries, we can build a proposal for our services. This will be a custom proposal based on the specific early requirements of your project. A scope of work is proposed and an estimate of cost is provided.
We always like to kick-off our consulting work with a face-to-face meeting with our client in the country where the project is proposed. This allows the client to share his/her ideas about the project in more detail while we offer our experienced view on what we like about the project, what may work, and what is unlikely to be successful.
With the project goals clearly in mind, we then proceed with the technical task of identifying the most suitable site(s) for aquaculture in the target country. Our experience in aquaculture site search allows us to narrow the range and scope of the search process to sites having the greatest potential. High potential areas will be visited on-site and a detailed aquaculture site analysis will be undertaken.
For feasible projects, our team will continue to deliver key technical support and leadership to ensure the project is developed in the right way using the latest project management methodologies.
While no commercial aquaculture project is too big for us, we do have a minimum project size requirement of USD 0.3 million, which we feel is the absolute minimum required investment required for commercial aquaculture development.
The ideal design will be developed for the selected site and species utilizing innovative practices to ensure each and every project has a design that’s just right for the job. Every project we develop is a custom job. All designs will seek to maximize the natural features of the site in a sustainable way, with particular focus on engineering highly efficiency operations.
All designs are developed by civil and aquaculture engineers working in close collaboration with the entire project team.
Construction is frequently handled by local crews, while our team maintains a physical presence and oversees the entire process leaving no stone unturned.

The success of your fish farming business is dependent on many factors including the selection of a suitable site for your fish farm and the design and construction of facilities that enable efficient and economic operation.

A new technology to boost commercial fish farming in lakes, dams, reservoirs and rivers is being transferred from China to Uganda. The metal cage fish technology is being introduced by Chinese scientists through a three-year China-Uganda cooperation in aquaculture research, according to Barry Kamira, a research scientist at the National Fisheries Resources and Research Institute (NaFIRRI) and the coordinator of the project. The project started in April 2012.

Cage technology, unlike pond fish farming, relies on metal cages of various sizes that are suspended in a water body. Each cage carries up to 10,000 fingerlings. Fish farmers use a measure of their efficiency in converting food mass into increased body weight to know when to transfer the young fish to the next cage until they mature for harvesting six months later.

When the trial ends, the Ugandan government is expected to roll out the technology nationally. Uganda is taking the lead among the East African countries � Kenya and Tanzania to demonstrate the potential of rearing fish using metal cage fish farming technology to rapidly transform the sector from subsistence to commercial fish farming.
