While most consultancies focus only on building a facility and purchasing equipment, with this latest announcement Velocity Aqua is offering advice throughout the whole process of building a successful operation.

Aquaculture is the breeding, rearing, and harvesting of fish, shellfish, and other organisms across all aquatic environments. In the U.S., this includes species such as salmon, sea bass, pompano, oysters, clams, and mussels. Generally, aquaculture is used to provide food, but farms can also help to create healthier habitats and rebuild populations of threatened stocks.

The professionals at Velocity Aqua work closely with each client and tailor their advice to suit each farm’s individual requirements. Their suggestions focus on financing, investments, and production plans to improve aquaculture viability and sustainability.

When starting an aquaculture business, it is important to create a streamlined production plan before investing in costly equipment and materials. Velocity Aqua’s team of analysts are on hand to review the plan and provide a comprehensive report identifying areas of strength and weakness to develop the concept into a feasible and sustainable plan. This includes a fish health management plan, required when trying to attain a BAP or ASC certification.

They will also match entrepreneurs with an experienced facility operator to examine operational expenses and provide a third-party review. The consultant will examine the budget, review operations, and break down the finances to identify and mitigate significant expenses, find investment opportunities, and increase revenue streams.

The consultancy provides ongoing support throughout the operation’s lifetime, including making financial decisions such as when to upgrade technological equipment to improve the running of the farm.
