Successful Fishing Business In Ivory Coast For Sale

Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire
Asking Price:
$2,000,000 (USD) Furniture / Fixtures and Inventory / Stock included
Sales Revenue:
$1,800,000 (USD)
Cash Flow:
$1,500,000 (USD)

We are selling a Prestigious, successful and fully operational Fishing business with ship assets.

The Ivory coast is well known for sardines and the demand outweighs the supply. We are amongst a small number of businesses that are trying to meet the demand.

On average we turnover about 1.8 M USD (1.8 Million United States Dollars) equivalent per year .
Out total costs amount to about 300,000 USD including fuel, labour and port expenses.
We own outright two vessels that are included in the sale price.
The buyers are mostly cooperates who have fish packing factories and sell worldwide. Fishes are sold on a daily basis at the local fish market where we participate.

The greatest barrier to entry is obtaining the fishing license which is very hard to obtain due to the stringent law surrounding ethical fishing practises. After trying hard for over a year we were finally awarded the full license which is easily renewed.

We are selling this business as we wish to concentrate on our other ventures in the United Kingdom.

If interested, please contact the seller through the form on this page.
