STARTING AQUATIC FARMING (business plans & feasibility study)

QUESTION
  • Do you want to start up a fish/aquatic farming
    business?
     
  • Do you want to know how lucrative your fish/aquatic
    farming business will be?
     
  • Would you want to know how to own, manage, and make
    millions from your fish/aquatic farming business?
     
  • Or, do you want to venture into livestock production
    generally?
 If yes is
your answer, then;
  • What
    is your motivation?
The first step to take is to know
the reason why you want to venture into that business. Your motivation will
determine your overall attitude and the business strategy you will want to
take. As for fish farming business, you must decide whether you are raising few
fishes to feed your family or you want to start on a small scale and gradually
grow into a huge commercial enterprise. These questions are left for you to
answer for yourself.
  • What
    do I need to own the farm?
http://www.chrisfarmnigeria.comYou will need the following asset
mainly; Money, land, Ponds, Good water source, and Managerial skills  
  • Prerequisite
    in setting up the farming business
It is important to draft out your
business plans, goals and objectives in other to have a clear vision of what
you want or need, because, your vision is your driving energy that keeps you
running in the presence of obstacles or challenges. And when the vision is
clear, you can easily strategies the steps needed to get to your destiny which
will deliver your dreams at the long run. You should also make a budget that
would consist of all the items you would need to start up the farming business
like, cost of land, cost of pond constructions or mobile ponds (as the case may
be), cost of feeding your fishes until they are ready for sale, cost of
maintaining your business until the fishes are ready for sales (like; salaries
of workers, miscellaneous bills like light bills and so on).
  • Success
    buttons’ needed
For you to success in this
business, you will need to gather enough knowledge on the desired aquatic
animal you want to rear or culture; nevertheless, I will give you an iceberg of
some ideals needed;
a.     Living
condition;
You must know the living condition
needed of the aquatic animal in view, staring from knowing the required
temperature needed for your desired aquatic animal you wish to rear or culture.
Most aquatic animals cultured in African can survive in a temperature range of
18 to 30 degree Celsius. And maintaining the PH level of the water is very
important in other to enhance the survivals of living organism.
Please note; you should also get
rid of all polluting agents like sulphur and sulphuric compounds all around the
pond and its surrounding environment.
b.     Regular
water supply;
There
should be regular supply of clean fresh water for your aquatic animals. Since
they are aquatic, they cannot do without water, but that is not a reason to
encourage flooding, because if it occurs, your investment can be lost with it.
c.      Pond
construction;
Pond
construction can take the form of concrete or earthen pond. Concrete is easier
to manage but is expensive but earthen ponds are cheaper to construct but more
complex to manage. Nevertheless, when constructing your artificial ponds, you
must make sure it is deep enough to allow water flow in and out of the pond,
that is inlet (higher side) and outlet (lower side) point for easy harvesting.
The bottom of the pond should be made of clay soil (especially earthen pond to
retain water). Ensure that the pond contains about 16 percent lime or compost
to encourage the growth of phytoplankton and zooplanktons that will help break
down complex compounds in the ponds in other to release more oxygen in the
pond. It also serves as basal feeds for the aquatic animals in the pond.
Maintaining the PH level of the pond is very important like between7 to 8. 
d.    
Determine the species you want to
culture;
In
other to determine the species of aquatic animal that would strive well in your
locality, it is advisable to carry out a random sampling before selecting
specie for optimum return on your investment. 
e.      Feeding;
Aquatic
animals are not too difficult to feed because; most of them feed on aquatic
plants and animals found inside the pond. So you must create an environment to
inhabitants them. Most of them also can even feed on algae, maggots, insect
larva and other artificial feeds. Feeding with artificial feeds will help them
enhance their growth speedily and also get to market value on time. So, it is
advisable to feed them with artificial feeds to grow faster and reduce the
competition for food between cultured fishes that would have encouraged
cannibalism.
f.       Breeding;
The
higher the breeding of your aquatic animal, the higher the feeds consumed, the
higher the sales you make from your production and the higher your returns on
investment. But don’t let your love for money land you into ineffective
management (like; lack of ponds to put them, and money to feed them). Please,
breed the aquatic animals you can be able to manage.
g.     Disease
control and treatment       
Aquatic
animals can be affected or infected with diseases, bacteria’s, virus,
nematodes, and fungi. The best way to manage aquatic animals is to prevent them
from been infected by all the diseases and infections around. These can be
controlled by regular cleaning, preventing over population, and screening your
ponds regularly. When there is a disease outbreak, the first treatment is to
change the water in the pond. However, you can still apply chemicals like formalin,
salt or organophosphates. Please note; professional advice should be followed
strictly before applying any of these chemicals.
h.     Marketing
strategies;
If
your motive is to make profit from your aquatic farming business, then you must
give a careful consideration to the best marketing option that would maximize
your profits. You can sell directly to consumers or to people who will buy from
you in bulk and sell to smaller retailers or final consumers. But note; engage
in serious adverting strategy about a month before the maturity of your fish,
so that, as soon as it gets mature, you already have ready buyers on
ground.       
In
conclusion, aquatic farming (catfish/tilapia/prawn/craps/any other aquatic
animal) is a lucrative business that can lurch millions into your pockets, but
some are more lucrative than others, so do your research very well before
venturing into any one.
