What is the cost of building a fish farm or aquaponics facility?
Cost will depend on a variety of factors such as the size of fish system (metric tons), species, location, available economic incentives, etc.
Where can I build a facility?
We go all over the United States to build facilities. Certain areas provide better geographical and economic incentives, which are worth considering.
How long does it take to build an RAS facility?
A recirculating aquaculture systems facility takes about 12 months from the initial design to system start-up. Factors such as species and location will influence the time it takes.
What type of species can I grow in aquaculture?
We can provide recirculating aquaculture system solutions for many different species. The fish system can be designed to handle freshwater or saltwater species. The particular needs of your species and the market for selling the fish are other considerations we can help you work through.
Where can I sell my product?
You can sell to wholesalers, retailers, and even directly to restaurants. You can sell here in the U.S. and export to other countries. Certain types of fish will have a more significant market in particular areas of the country or world. If you are selling vegetables via aquaponics, you can sell your fresh, organic produce to local and regional distributors, chains and vendors.
How do I go from the idea stage to starting a project?
This is one of our specialties. We can help you determine the feasibility of your idea and help shape it into a reality. Typically the best way to go about this is to perform a Feasibility Study.
What is a Feasibility Study?
A Feasibility Study is a natural prerequisite before a large project. We will look into all sorts of factors related to your desired site location including utilities and permits, investigate the potential for your chosen species, check into economic development incentives, prepare an initial budget and preliminary design drawings of your fish system.
What is a Design/Build Agreement?
At this point you’re ready to go. You have concluded a Feasibility Study or similar research, and know exactly where and what to build. The Design/Build Agreement is your contract with us to design and build you a fish farm or aquaponics facility.
