Hauge Aqua Rwanda (HAR) was established in 201X in order to pursue an opportunity to create a commercial fish farming company at Lake Kivu in Rwanda. The operations will be located in Lake Kivu, which is a boarder lake between Rwanda and DR Kongo. Our operation will be baserd not far from Kamembe, Rwanda.
The current plan for the further development of HAR is to:
- Establish breeding locality and growing locality
- Establish land base and build work boat
- Build an operating organization
- Build test production of 300 tonnes per year
- Establish sales and distribution equipment
The estimated repayment period on the investment required to undertake this operation will be 2-3 years. The sites HAR has been allocated for the production has a potential capacity to produce 2500 - 3000 tonnes per year.
We have established that there is a great demand for fish in Rwanda and across the border in Congo. And the estimated cost to bring the fish to market are $ 1.7-2.0 / kg, while the sales price are expected to be in the area $ 2.5-3.0 / kg
In August 2018, HAR hired Anton van Schalkwyk as a Managing Director for the operations. Having lived in the area since 2011, Anton represents a much needed competence for HAR through his understanding of the language and the cultural aspects of operation. And further he are also familiar with the ways of doing business in the area and therefore can navigate HAR around the pits. Anton will further closely follow up on the financial aspects of the operation.
