A profitability analysis of three types of culture for Rural and
Artisanal Aquaculture practice in Ecuador is put under scrutiny:
monoculture of the freshwater fish cachama (Piaractus brachypomus),
monoculture of red claw crayfish (Cherax quadricarinatus) and
polyculture tilapia - cachama. The economic models used for this
particular analysis are Net Present Value (NPV) and Internal Rate
of Return (IRR). Using these methods in combination with a
sensitivity analysis foresaw the feasibility on investment for the
monoculture of red claw crayfish showing the highest Net Present
Value (NPV) among the trials, followed closely by the monoculture
of cachama and the third place in order of profitability was found
in the polyculture. The sensitivity analysis matched the results in
NPV, with red claw. However, conditions such as experience in the
Aquaculture field and technological advantage might be serious
factors to be considered at the moment to select this investment.
