Hi all! Hope all is well.

I am pleased to offer a great opportunity for a quick start up in the Tilapia Fish Farming Business in the Eastern Region of Ghana.

We have for sale a complete business that has been registered in Ghana to construct and run a Tilapia farm.
The business has been registered with all relevant governing bodies with all of the licenses and legal work having been obtained and compliance adhered to regarding the setting up of a Tilapia farm.
This in turn may save you years of negotiations with governing bodies in Ghana.

On offer is a 4.83 Acre plot of coastal land to the Volta Lake and 5 acres of lake waters, of which the use can be extended.

The land houses 3 small villages consisting of 10 mud built huts, and has a 48 year lease, which can be easily extended to 49 years should the land leesers have not committed any breach of the contractual agreements.
There is a ground rent charge to pay on an annual basis, which is reviewable every 5 years.

The land and business has been registered by internationals, meaning the fees that have been paid are for foreign business owners.

The site is ready to start building cages and begin trade.

The asking price for this great business opportunity is $130,000.00 (One Hundred and Thirty Thousand US Dollars) and is negotiable.
Should you want to purchase the LAND ONLY, there is also the opportunity for this. The asking price for this is also negotiable.

The vendors are looking for a quick sale and can proceed immediately.

For more information please don't hesitate to contact me.

Emma or Vinni

Or, you can spend $20,000 on a suitable piece of land in Louisiana or Mexico.
Do you have any lists of manufactured assets whose value is part of your price?

What is 5 acres of land without a water lease worth?

The map shows about 20 acres of water. Is adjacent water used as fish farms?

Do you know how many fishermen live within 20 km? How would theft from the pens be prevented?

Can you name other foreigners who are currently operating a successful business of this sort?

There are agencies who rate countries for foreign investment. Some want investment, while others allow it, with a plan to eventually bury the outsider in red tape.

For example, Zimbabwe has courted foreign money, with the goal of seizing all assets once a business is established. I know 4 people who lost everything that way.

Three villages seems like a lot, an a small parcel. What rights do the occupants have? Would they be the work force?

Hello Dale

There is currently nothing yet on the the site, it is purely the land and the the waters and the Company (which owns the land) which has been authorised by the local authority to set up a Tilapia farm.
There are no assets included in the price.

The map showing the 20 acres of water is the area has been reserved as extra space beyond the 5 acres allocated to the company. This area is available for the company should they wish to extend the farm, however they would not be able to extend further than that 20acres shown. It is kind of like a 'Buffer Zone.'

The land adjacent... The lake is large so if you are asking about the land directly opposite, it wouldn't really make a difference. However there are some farms operating in the area.

Any Fisherman?? There are fisherman in the local area however I have not counted them individually. Many of them are simply sourcing food for their family, and are not really competition.
If interested in the Business, you would have to carry out your own Risk Assessment on how to prevent theft, however many of the Fish Farming companies in Ghana build little huts on the water near by the cages and have a security guard on duty 24/7 as well as solar CCVT operating.

Other foreign companies successfully opperating.. Triton Aquaculture, Tropo Farms, Delta Fisheries, West African Fisheries, Laveroff Farms... to name a few.

I am not looking for investment, I am solely selling a Company that was set up by an international to set up a Tilapia Farm. Again, should you be interested, you would need to do your own checks and have your own Risk Assessment set up to be sure you are not being ripped off.
As the business was registered under an international, the majority of the hard work has been done, gaining permission from the Environmental Protection Agency and the Volta River Authority, to name a few authorities.

As for the 3 villages, the land that we have bought will be completely vacant and the people residing there are 100% aware of this. They have agreed that once work begins in the area, they will relocate. The rights of the occupants have been discussed with the Local Chief (The previous Land Owner) and they are aware that they will have to relocate.
The Workforce? You would have to check this out for yourself to see if they are qualified enough to do the job you require them to do! Of course people in the area need a job to do, however that would be down to your recruitment matters.

I hope this answers your questions Dale.

Should you have anymore I'm happy to answer.

Kind regards
