Shrimp farm investing can be profitable farm investing and enjoyable farm investing as well.

Look at what happens when you think about shrimp farm investing. Picture waves crashing on black haystack rocks that grind an aquamarine Pacific into foam and mists of white. Think about shrimp farm investing in the areas around Puerto Lopez, Ecuador. Imagine sitting on the gleaming 35-foot cruiser. Warm salt air massages your sun-drenched skin as you race west, hypnotized by a sleepy drone from twin Yamaha 115s. This is an enjoyable part of shrimp farm investing!

There are many economic opportunities to share in Ecuador. Shrimp farm investing is just one. “What really is paradise?” I asked this question on my last trip to Ecuador’s Pacific coast. Let me assure you, I was not thinking about shrimp farm investing. I was looking across the sea at eleven shrimpers that glowed white as they bobbed on the horizon. Their bird covered arms trailed nets that looked like spidery webs.

I watched the ocean turn deep indigo as the continental shelf dropped away. Our destination was Isla de la Plata, the Silver Isle, little known but like Galapagos, the home of rare birds (we saw loads of blue footed boobies in their rookery) and animal life not known elsewhere.

“What really is paradise?” I pondered this. Sure the idea of shrimp farm investing crossed my mind but while walking a broad beach at sunrise to join the villagers for the morning’s catch, I was mainly having fun.

Ditto for the evening listening to the soft murmur of young lovers as they strolled on a warm evening, holding hands. Shrimp farm investing? Naw, I was asking if seeing a billion stars on a clear night is paradise? I was wondering if the native market piled high in mangos, papaya, pineapples, custard fruit, bananas in yellow, red and green, blackberries, ovos, plums, beans, potatoes, corn, tomatoes, peppers, cabbages bigger than a bread basket, flowers and other delicious fruits and vegetables was the heaven I sought.

Other experiences in my quest to learn more about shrimp farm investing included a cook who prepares edible treasures with love and serves them on an open-air balcony cleansed by a sweet breeze from the sea. Was this the paradise I sought? An afternoon sleep in a hammock, soothed by a gentle salt breeze? Riding through a tropical forest listening to monkeys calling out? Fresh ground juice at night on the terrace? Village laughter in the darkness heard from a comfortable bed? Friendly, happy faces everywhere?

Merri and I enjoyed all this as we researched shrimp farm investing. We are not the only ones who see the potential of shrimp farm investing either. One delegate from our last Pacific coastal extension (Details for our next conference are at GaryScott.com) wrote:

“Approximately 8 of us decided to help out w/restarting the shrimp farm business with Diego. Apparently his cohorts need around $8,000. So, we figured with $1,000 each we could start up a venture. We didn’t put out any money yet, as there wasn’t any official documents or business structure to approve. We’re not sure if it will become profitable shrimp farm investing in the near future, but, with a small capital investment, it wouldn’t be a great loss and would greatly benefit some of the people there. It looks like the 8 investors would share 50% of the profits and the other 50% goes to the Ecuadorians involved in the work and Diego, of course. I think we should do a business plan with Gary’s guidance and expertise. I feel that there should be an issuance of shares, therefore, if some people added more capital or cashed in some shares, or reinvested the profits there would be a way of accounting for and dividing the profits/losses. I don’t think we’ll do anything without Gary looking over the process. We’d get one pod up and running and then start a fresh water pod with the Indigenous up in the hills using lemon and garlic as feed in the pods.”

Another delegate who joined in on the coastal extension, wrote about shrimp farm investing:

“Dear Gary. Thank YOU so much for a wonderful event. In addition to your very informative seminar, we went on the coastal tour and enjoyed it immensely. I told you about the reservations I had concerning the shrimp farm investing but Diego answered (almost) all of our questions satisfactorily so we are going ahead with the shrimp farm investing project, hoping to revive shrimp farming in an ecological way in Ecuador. If this works then we can use it as a demonstration project for shrimp farm investing elsewhere, such as in Mexico, where it has been very destructive.”

So our delegates have their first shrimp farm investing project going and their goals go way beyond just the money. They love the beauty of the coast and are proving fair trade employment for the poor as they help restore the environment. And who is Diego, you might ask. He is a long term associate of our best friends in Ecuador, Santiago and Betsy, who own Ecuador Amazing. He has a doctorate degree in Marine Biology and a keen sense of ecology and has been involved in shrimp farm investing for years. Ecuador is filled with these dedicated, well-educated young men who have a lot of know-how and experience but need capital.

We have developed other contacts for those who are interested in shrimp farm investing.

One reader wrote about shrimp farm investing:

“I am writing a letter to the several people who have contacted me through Gary Scott regarding their interest in investing in shrimp farming in Ecuador.

“I have been involved in commercial aqua culture of several species shrimp for the last 24 years, and unlike other consultants, actually built and operated 5 different shrimp farms all over the world.

“I recently sold my company, and am semi-retired. Only working from time to time as a consultant when a particular client is working on a project of interest.

“I am a little at a loss as I do not know what precisely what Gary has said about me.

“Let me start with what I am not. I am not farming in Ecuador nor do I have any contacts for a particular deal or farm under development there. I am considering purchasing a home on the coast near Manta, and will likely hang my shingle there in the future to assist farmers and investors (in shrimp farm investing).

“What I can be for you is an objective industry expert, able to penetrate the hype that surrounds shrimp farm investing.

I can make sure that the plans and projections you may invest in are viable and possible, and steer you away from the projects that are based on unachievable projections in shrimp farm investing).

“Indeed, in this capacity the fact that I have no experience in Ecuador will keep my observations above the spin that often accompanies shrimp farming projects. The fact is, way more money has been lost than made in this industry of shrimp farm investing). It’s not quite like farming silk worms, but not too far from it in terms of hype.

“I am presently working for the Mexican government on a project in Guanajuanto and will be here until the end of February.

“However, I respectfully suggest that before you invest a dime in this industry, you retain an industry expert to review the plans you are funding (for shrimp farm investing).

“My fee is $500 a day with a minimum retainer of 2 days for any project I review.

“Should you find yourself in the position of actually looking at a specific project you are considering investing in, a few dollars to review the viability will keep you from making an uninformed decision (about shrimp farm investing).

“Feel free to contact me with specific questions or ideas. I will let you know if we need to get the meter running if I feel that is necessary.

“Best Fishes, (and shrimp, too!) Marshall.

We also received some interest in shrimp farm investing from this reader who wrote:

“DEAR MR SCOTT: SOME WEEKS AGO I BELIEVE I READ AN ARTICLE ON THE NEED FOR CAPITAL INFUSION INTO THE FISHING INDUSTRY IN ECUADOR. I HAVE ASKED LEE HARRISON TO PUT ME IN CONTACT WITH YOU. COULD YOU GIVE ME A BROADER OUTLINE OF WHO NEEDS MONEY FOR WHAT AND HOW MUCH, (IF YOU KNOW OR CAN FIND OUT)? I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK WITH OR TO SOME OF THE PEOPLE WHO DO NEED CAPITAL AND WHAT THE FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENT WOULD BE FOR ME AFTER PUTTING IN THE INVESTMENT. I WOULD NOT WANT TO HELP RUN THE COMPANY OR COMPANIES, BUT WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO BE INFORMED BY THE OWNERS AS PROGRESS IS MADE. THANK YOU FOR WHATEVER HELP YOU CAN FURNISH. BEST REGARDS. LEO”

Is shrimp farm investing for you? I cannot answer this question but if you love the Pacific Ocean there is nowhere that has cleaner seas and so many exotic sites. Most of Ecuador’s coast is in the authentic, rough and tumble, pre-resort stage. (If you love Disney World and Cancun, this area is definitely not for you!)

If you wish you had discovered Puerto Vallarta or Akumal on the Yucatan Peninsula 30 years ago, then shrimp farm investing here may appeal.

If you have an interest in shrimp farm investing and want contacts, let me know at gary@successguidelines.com.

We’ll starting another coastal tour soon. Details at GaryScott.com

Until next message, good shrimp farm investing or any type of business to you!

P.S. On other great feature of the May coastal trip, beyond the shrimp farm investing details, is whale watching. The observation season will just be starting and seeing huge humpback whales up really close is almost guaranteed.
