Aquaculture Economics 101 "What Does It Take for an Aquaculture Business to Be Profitable"

The US Soybean Export Council (USSEC) is pleased to invite you to join us in a Zoom webinar on the Aquaculture Economics 101 "What Does It Take for an Aquaculture Business to Be Profitable?", a four-days program to discuss key elements to promote a profitable and sustainable aquaculture industry on May 4-7, 2021 at 9:00AM - 1:00PM (GMT +7).

About the Event

USSEC’s Global Aquaculture Program has always focused on the idea of profitability as a key component of our technical servicing. Aquaculture operations that are profitable are the ones that move the commercial industry. The USSEC Aquaculture Program knows that in order to encourage best practices, including a long-term, sustainable aquaculture industry, that profitability has to be a key focus. USSEC also sees this as a key part of promotion of a larger, feed-based aquaculture industry using high quality, sustainable aquafeeds, the type of feeds that would naturally use certified sustainable, high quality U.S. soy as an ingredient.  

The Aquaculture Economics 101: “What Does It Take for an Aquaculture Business to Be Profitable?” Program is specifically geared to providing information for long term profitability of aquaculture operations through better understanding of the key factors involved in success. Using internationally recognized experts over four half days we will discuss key aspects of aquaculture production, including: 

  • Why do aquaculture businesses fail or succeed? 
  • Business planning and the business model 
  • Market planning and strategies 
  • Aquaculture value chains and certification
  • Personnel and staffing 
  • Production economics decisions 
  • Economics of feeds and feeding 
  • Finances 
  • Sustainability considerations   

Who Should Attend

This program is suited to anyone on the aquaculture production chain, but may be most useful for those working most directly with the farming of aquaculture species, including feedmills, as feeds are a large percentage of production costs for aquaculture.   

Please join this program to learn more details about how better understanding of aquaculture economics can benefit you, your company, or your organization.
