What have we learned?

Fish farming is not easy. It requires deep skills, lot of time and seed cash. This not a hobby or a small scale farming model (although we tend to start off this way).

In order to be successful in fish farming you will need

  • A plan – plan your business
  • Your full and undivided attention
  • Several million rand,ONCE you know what you are doing. Before you get there a hundred grand will see your school fees paid.

THIS IS FARMING. No different to carrots, tomatoes or cows or sheeps. In other words this is long term, capital intensive and highly dependent on scale.

You will also need a market for your fish that you have farmed. That’s the easiest part – people want to eat fish, but they can’t find it. Enter…. you!

Match size of fish to demand for them at the right price and you’re A for Away.

Make no mistake this is not for the faint hearted – but then those who stick with it will make a lot of money. Think Rainbow Fish, as a listed JSE entity.

The Aquaculture Production Unit (APU)

The APU is the only useful tool to get you to the place where you can answer the question that only you can answer. No consultant can ever give you the insights into fish production that you need. They can only point you in the right direction. You have to do for yourself.
