In Svetlogorsk, Belarus, project developers requested Holland Aqua to investigate the viability of a business plan for intensive catfish farming.
The objective was to create a modern intensive catfish farm with a total production capacity of 500 tons, with an average production level of 750 kg/m3/year. An inactive fish farming location, no more than a concrete construction, was to be reconstructed in order to house a fish farming unit as well as a processing unit.
Holland Aqua studied the technical and financial feasibility of the business case, performed a market study, studied packaging, distribution and export options, and produced a concept design of an advanced intensive RAS catfish farm, to be constructed with locally sourced materials.
