What can we do for you.
AquaCrops can assist you with all developmental stages of your commercial aquaculture project.
A prefeasibility study is carried out to determine the scope of success for a potential project. For it we will have to meet with you. During the study we test the suitability of the natural resources (land, water, climate, etc) of the proposed project sites, and verify the availability of construction materials and production inputs.
If the results of the prefeasibility study are favorable then it is time for a full blown feasibility study. In this study we develop an appropriate culture system for you and forecast its production. Based on these we estimate the farm construction cost and operational cost.
Feasibility studies for aquaculture projects can be carried out by AquaCrops.
With your 'go a head' the actual design of the farm can take off. Based on additional topographical data we engineer for you the production systems (ponds, tanks, raceways etc) and select suppliers and contractors as well as the necessay equipment and tools. At this stage we also identify the final project cost and compile for you a business plan.
With all the paper work well done and the necessary capital available the farm can be constructed. Aquacrops can serve you in this process by supervising the construction process. Further we can assist you with the selection of the staff and the start up of your farm.
