How to Open a Fish Farm
Fish farming is a lucrative business venture, and best suited for people whose life is more or less connected with agriculture. A fish farm business makes a profit out of breeding and selling fish for food. Potential clients could be restaurants and final consumers. Here is our brief advice on many requirements for opening your own fish farm business.
The primary prerequisite required to open a fish farm is the selection of the type of fish farm. The popular types of the fish farm are a tank and pond. The secondary consideration is site selection. A fish farm can be best maintained in the countryside where ponds are easily available. The people in cities are the main consumers of fish, and live fish is in huge demand at any time of a year.
It is very important to take into account that a fish is a living creature, constant, and proper care is necessary. You will also need some prior experience and knowledge of the fish farming process. Know the quality characteristics when you buy any fish species and the best conditions to raise it.
The other things you will be looking for include renting a pond, and there should be no factories or landfills nearby to your fish farm. Install a cage to give protection to your fish until harvesting time. Purchase feed and additives so that your fish become resistant to various diseases.
On arrival of harvesting time, you will have to search for ways to market your fish. You could supply your fish to small private shops and also to the large supermarkets. If you have enough money, you can construct your own shop selling fish or open a small department in some store.
