In 2016, LandIng Aquaculture has been offering market studies to help aquaculture entrepreneurs understand the value chains, key players, markets and consumer preferences of selected aquaculture species. The result of LandIng's studies help support decision making on species to be farmed, locations where to place the fish farm, type of products that could be offered, expected sales prices and potential competitors. LandIng Aquaculture undertakes the studies using information from publicly-available databases as well as field-gathered information specifically for each project. The result is a study that provides the client with solid background data and with in-depth information unique for each study case.
For this project, the client has requested LandIng to undertake a comparative study of both species (European eel and Sunshine bass, also known as Striped Sea Bass) so as to focus the business development efforts in one of them. The study provided the client with production figures, sales prices for each value chain step, competitors,. technical aquaculture information for both species, plus an analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of pursing a project with either species.
