Is salmon a good choice for my first mini fish farm in South Africa?

Salmon, though an excellent market fish, is a large undertaking for an inexperienced farmer or low scale trial. Although The breeding of this kind of fish is nearly equal trout, these fish require some time living in the ocean. This means they may require additional facilities to get them there, depending on the location of the fish farm.

This is why we promote Tilapia as the perfect fish for most easy care and production.

I am looking to venture into aquaculture industry in Tanzania and require professional guidance with regards to a business plan to help me determine if aquaculture is a business that is worth investing into under the current investment climate in Tanzania, and if so what would be the species to be farmed. As currently, the most common is catfish and Tilapia.
