About Aquaculture Insight
 
Aquaculture Insight has created a framework conducive to investment. A long-term view has been taken to ensure that this investment in aquaculture development is ecologically, economically and socially sustainable. Aquaculture Insight has taken the following into account to achieve this objective:
 
• A strong demand for fish products,
• decrease in supply of competing food products,
• correct site location and system design,
• control and management of production parameters,
• high international food prices,
• efficient use of resources, and
• economies of scale
All these variables taken into account prove to be a winning combination that will ensure the success and sustainability of our proposed aquaculture systems. We have developed an operational support programme, to support investing farmers during the implementation phase, thus guarantee’s the sustainability of our proposed aquaculture systems.
