Winter Fish Farm - 1
Bangladesh is considered one of the most suitable countries in the world for freshwater aquaculture, because of its favourable resources and agro-climatic conditions. Aquaculture and fisheries together contribute 3.61% to Bangladesh's national GDP and around 24.41% to the agricultural GDP (DoF, 2017). The last ten years of the average growth performance of this sector is almost 5.43%.
Pangas is a relatively new and fast-growing fish species that has great potential for production and export growth in Bangladesh. However, production following the artificial propagation practiced over the country and it gained much popularity in Bangladesh because of its rapid growth, ease culture technique, high disease resistance and tolerance to a wide range of environmental adaptation. It has been a good source of protein and calories for poor, medium and better-off people in rural as well as urban areas.
Tilapia as hardy, fast-growing, short term, suits in freshwater to brackish, smaller to larger water bodies, cope with different cultural patterns, taste with no muscular bone becoming popular day by day. Tilapia is produced in a wide range of culture systems, including small-scale, low-input, rural ponds, semi-intensive, intensive and commercial operations. Harvesting of tilapia starts as soon as fish reach marketable size.
For people who are interested to be part of this farm, they can purchase a value per unit of BDT 22,000 or equivalent to 290 kg of Tilapia/ Pangas. The duration of the project is 6 months with a projected profit sharing of 8.5% which will be distributed at maturity.

What should be my expectations from my Fish farm share?
iFarmer purchases the production from the farm on behalf of the ‘Funder’ in the designated farm in advance and ensures proper management against risk and also provides inputs, advisory and market access to the farm.
On completion of your fund payment, you will be allocated with a total production of one farm, based on the availability in the project location and issued an Client Contract bearing your name and the number of the unit only for one production cycle.
Afterwards, iFarmer will work as your portfolio manager for the agreed time period, and before the contract, the period ends you will receive your basic fund along with the offered dividend.
