The success of a fish farming project largely depends on your
project site conditions.
Site conditions determine whether your fish farm will competitively produce.
Correct selection of the site, and correct design of your fish farm in
this site, can ‘make-or-break’ your new business.
APT developed the expertise of identifying, analyzing and selecting best
possible sites for fish and prawn farming. Site selection process takes into
account the biological traits of the target fish or Shrimp crop, the
intended production capacity, the facilities required to achieve optimal and
cost effective production.
Factors to consider:
||Precipitation, temperature range, winds, solar
||Type, availability, seasonal flow rate,
||Composition, salinity, mud erosion, etc
||Topography and the elevation system of land and
||Profile and mechanical
characteristics for construction
||Pollution, hazards, sensitive ecological niches
||Roads, services, access, communication,
electrical grid, etc
APT will provide Guidelines for Site Identification. Preliminary ‘site data’
is gathered by you according to APT’s
Data Collection Manual.
Once a potential site is identified, APT will send a technical team to the site
to evaluate site conditions and gather detailed information needed to
determine the suitability of the site for the aquaculture project.

Rapid Evaluation Program.
