Problem and Justification

The demand for fish in Africa is very high and under supply. However, a few business have ventured the area yet there is still not enough supply to the market. So there is still more that can be done. 

 

ADUMO FARMS (Aquaculture Department) is targeting to supply 10tons of tilapia and 10tons of Catfish to the market per month.

Strengths

The farm is located in Fumbisi, Upper East Region of Ghana. 

• Land has been secured for the project uptake. 

• Weather conditions are also good for growth of fish especially tilapia and Catfish. 

• Again labour is cheaper is location as compared to the City.

• In addition to the above the feed materials for feed preparation is available and cheap.

 

Weakness

• Infrastructure to process the fish and add value. 

• Transportation to market

• By-product utilization

 

Opportunities

• Set-up a fish processing infrastructure for value addition to the  fish we will produce.

• Make available cold vehicles that will transport products to customers reach.

• Set-up a biogas digester that you utilize the effluent from the fish during processing.

 

 

 

 

Threats

• Bad government policies

• Disaster

However, better measures will be taken to check these threats such producing the people’s choice so the people will still choose us even if the government allow imported fish.
