About my Start-up
Plan to create a high-tech farm – Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) for breeding valuable fish species and obtaining caviar. RAS mean-extract of caviar (without killing the fish) to finished product (fish) takes place in a building with certain specified square area. Cost of farm turnkey – 2 million euros. The main reason for siting in Kyrgyzstan – an excellent ecological situation, natural water does not require a huge financial cost of filtration and enrichment.
Product or service description (incl. current status of development – beta, prototype, etc.)
RAS is fishery project – Recirculating Aquaculture System .There are chain of pools indoor and filtered water is supplied .That water flows in circle. Vaporized water replaces.
Also water cleans up during the whole process because of it constant circuit flow. That makes the product (fish and etc) healthy, environmentally friendly and meets the worldwide Health standards. Suppliers of equipment and major assemblies German companies with a worldwide reputation . Using that system we plan to breed following kinds of fish: sturgeon, eel, trout, burbot (eelpout) etc
Environmental side of the project is does not require the construction of large ponds, reservoirs in the open, in which control of water (evaporation and seepage into the soil) is very difficult and even unrealistic, which leads to a change in the climate of the region for the worse. Some data on aquaculture, pond farming occupies 1 hectare has a capacity of 5-7 tons of fish a year, and RAS farm in 1000-1500 m2 has productivity of 60-100-120 tons of fish per year
Why your idea is a “winner"?:
Market of fish - seafood consumption are inanimate in Kyrgyzstan, it is connected with traditions -habit which is not formed because of the lack of seafood, therefore, the bulk of production will be exported. In this pilot version of the farm, the main importer - consignee of the finished product - live fish will be grantor, predetermined percentage of products will go to offset the amount of the grant. These types of fish such as sturgeon, eel, burbot and sturgeon caviar are not difficult to implement. The sale will be provisional production order.
Sales and Marketing Plan (how you will go-to-market)
The production capacity of the pilot farm is low for the world market, and purpose of this farm to attract more investment by the Japanese corporation Mitsui Bussan. Mitsui Corporation has its divisions Mitsui Foreign Trade and Mitsui Foods, and further development and dissemination of the project is planned with their participation, because they have a solid practice and good work marketing and sales strategy
What is your current or intended business/revenue model?:
Do you have any Patent or IP registered (related to the solution that you are looking for an investment)?:
Has your technology already been implemented in any field/sector?:
Which market and customer need(s)/problem(s) is (are) your products(s)/service(s) going to solve?:
Feature of the whole project - plan, building a pilot version, based on the pilot version of the attraction of a larger investment from Mitsui(Foods) the purpose of obtaining project-growing environmentally friendly products, fish with the further implementation of the (export) outside of the Kyrgyzstan , the reason, our region can-not consume such capacity, but it can give, as said before clean (healthy) products
Cutting theme of healthy products, the water supplied to the system, river water coming from the mountain glaciers or artesian wells. Kyrgyzstan is localized about 40,000 large and small rivers total length of 150,000 kilometers, the amount of about 47 km3 of fresh water, but in spite of the system provided high-tech filtration and further enrichment of the incoming water that positively affect the quality of fish produced
One of the important goals of the project, the research and the possibility of domestication, cultivation of other valuable fish species (inhabitants of water bodies), which is prohibited or limited fishing, in the case of positive results release a certain percentage of fish (fry) in a natural habitat , for this plan to create a selection-labs in the promotion of regional universities or(and) universities that you designate - will advise for more detailed and scientific research.
