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.

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.
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.
