It is a fact that over 75% of all aquaculture start-ups fail within the first two years of operation. Often this is down to a lack of business planning and too much focus on the technical side of the project. While it is obviously important that aquaculture systems are designed to work efficiently, it is just as important that a coherent and well thought out business plan exists, which has identified the markets and expected revenues which will be received.
MEP does not design aquaculture systems (other than bespoke aquaponic facilities). We leave the design of cage farms and/or Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) to technical engineering companies. What we do offer, is a full business planning service for your project from inception and initial marketing strategies through to a 5-10 year strategic plan and continuing mentoring or review (as required). MEP has gained over three decades of business and marketing experience around the globe. When coupled with our staff’s aquaculture knowledge and business based background, we are unique in specialising in the specific business and marketing of commercial aquaculture companies.
