Niche-market fish and crustacean species
Which niche-market demand does this type of production satisfy?
What opportunities does it open up?
First of all, with niche-market fish and crustacean species we mean the aquatic animals that are currently farmed mainly in backyard and family-run aquaponic facilities. In fact, the breeding of these species isn’t widespread yet in commercial Aquaponics. Since this kind of production addresses to a market demand that is mostly recreational and ornamental.
Therefore the market competition is lower. Rather than in the food production market. So to conclude the lesson on how to choose the fish and crustacean species to raise in Aquaponics. Besides the main species reared in Aquaponics on a commercial scale. And the farming of the most profitable fish and crustaceans that are currently being trialed. Either freshwater and seawater ones (in Marine Aquaponics). In addition in this lesson of our Aquaponics Manual we outline the features of some of the niche-market species currently reared all over the world.
Furthermore,we added an instruction sheet where we display step by step all the factors to take into consideration to choose the fish and crustacean species that best fit your Aquaponics business requirements. Because it’s essential to keep in mind that large part of the success of your business project relies on this choice. In conclusion our advise is: take your time to figure this matter out! As a matter of fact you have an almost wide range of opportunities to look into.
