The evolution of an aquaculture business and its maturity stages will have a direct impact on the design of its organizational structure. The organization maturity stages have been categorized into three stages to facilitate the implementation of its strategies and recruitment activities.
A Three Stage Approach
1st Stage - Site Infrastructure
Site infrastructure work to build & install water channels, water tanks, pump stations, power plant, roads and staff accommodations.
2nd Stage - Core Business Activities (sample)
Core business capabilities to start operations on hatchery, grow-out & wholesale with a capacity of 4000 tons of fish (sea bass & sea bream) and 1000 tons of shrimp (panaeus indicus) per annum.
3rd Stage - Aquaculture Facility
End-to-end aquaculture production facility with a feed mill, processing plant and packaging supported by distribution and marketing & sales.
Aquaculture Business Growth Framework
The framework consists of two prime sections: aquaculture value chain segments and economic impact factors.
