BEE Procurement Opportunities

Starting an Aquaculture Business

Setting up an Aquaculture Business can be an expensive exercise and is not for the faint hearted. You need to acknowledge that it represents a significant business decision that requires not only a serious commitment but also time. Just like any other business venture, it requires a detailed feasibility study before investment decisions are made. Anything less than that puts you in the category of hobby farming, which is an excellent lifestyle choice but may not earn an income. Please visit for information.
