Why the Commercial B8 system
We call this system Commercial system 8B because it has 8 grow beds that it was designed around.
There are two points to note;
We design our Aquaponics system around our Bio-Filter which in our case is either the grow beds or dutch pots we do not have stand-alone bio-filters.
Our Commercial Aquaponics farms are built and operate to an “economies of scale” formula.
What Economies Of Scale basically means is;
When more units of a good or service can be produced on a larger scale, yet with (on average) fewer input costs, alternatively, this means that as a company grows and production units increase, a company will have a better chance to decrease its costs.
The Commerical B8 system to the minimum size that we believe should be built as a Commercial system
Production output is estimated at 24,640 Kg of Fish and 12,000 Kg of Lettuce per month.
Below is a button that will download a spreadsheet that has the production, rotation, and revenue on it
Production & Revenue
Click the button below and it will download a very simple spreadsheet that you can look at and even adjust to your marketplace.
The spreadsheet will show you the production cycle of fish and vegetables and the estimated revenue of this system.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Commercial Aquaponics profitability is based on the size of the system and its capacity to produce at its maximum.
As always the calculation used on this spreadsheet is based on growing Tilapia as the fish and lettuce for vegetable production and the rotation is based on our knowledge and experience and will differ from the species and vegetables used in your system.
Using the Spreadsheet
You will see on lines 12 and 13 to the top left, 2 boxes with “Predicted Sales Prices” as the heading, you can change this to suit your marketplace for the price per 1Kg of fish (Tilapia) and 1 Kg of lettuce (cos).
Please note: The figures in this spreadsheet are based on the Cambodia marketplace.
