Aquaculture Business Plan

There are several unique dimensions to every Aquaculture business such as its location, breed of fish, capacity, operations plan, and management team. These components, in addition to several others literally differentiate a failing operation with a successful one capable of scaling. Investors realize this notion, which is why a custom business plan that outlines the unique strengths of your Aquaculture operation will help you to outperform other investment opportunities and be more prepared to enter or scale within the market. Pro Business Plans has prior experience working with large scale Aquaculture operations, but it focuses on the points that make yours different in the market and the reasons why it will be more stable and profitable than its competition.

Business Model

The business model for an aquaculture business plan is more complex than one may initially conceive it to be. For instance, the breed of fish that the facility raises and the location it is based can often determine its long-term market potential. Aquaculture operations located in remote areas that require long distance logistics will have a more challenging time competing with those more centrally located to buyers, but may have lower overhead costs to run the facility. These trade-offs and similar ones, such as the method and breed of fish raised all intertwine to produce the business model of the facility




Marketing Plan

In many cases, an aquaculture business plan lacks an extensive marketing section, unless the operation intends to process the fish that it raises and sell consumer products. Live fish are often purchased directly by supermarkets, sold to processors or as private label in supermarkets. Therefore, the majority of marketing efforts are to leverage B2B sales methods and account management to ensure that purchasing agreements remain in place. However, some companies may seek to brand their own fish or expand into other markets, in which case a more complex marketing plan and budget is created.




Financial Projections

The financial projections for an aquaculture business plan depend upon several factors including the price of the fish sold, the overhead expenses, and long-term strategy of the management team. Some facilities anticipate adding new runways to expand the facility size, which will impact the cash flows, balance sheet, and income statement. Banks and investors will want to know that any intended expansion of the facility is done so with minimal risk, which can be demonstrated financially by forming reasonable market assumptions and analyzing the historical performance the aquaculture facility. The aquaculture business plan will contain a full breakdown of the core financial statements, in addition to custom risk and profitability projections.
