Access to finance in the aquaculture sector has traditionally been a hotly debated topic. On one side, there is recognition that aquaculture is needed to satisfy the growing demand for quality animal proteins. On the other, the risks associated with aquaculture production and the fragmentation of the sector – especially in tropical aquaculture – have limited the appetite for investors to finance the sector, other than services and processing.
This document is designed for investors operating in Indonesia. It aims to provide a summary of the aquaculture sector and its potential, a description of the risks and mitigation strategies, and a presentation of possible financial models.
