Given the expansion of Tilapia farming in Ghana, this paper analyses inclusive business models along the fish seed value chain. There is a table of classifications and examples of inclusive business models on page nine and a seed systems business model review on page ten. The research exposes challenges for farmers that are relevant to public private engagements in aquiculture. Four model prototypes have been developed: nursery, local feed mill, seed agents, and local hatchery with an overview of the value proposition and financial considerations for each model. This is an in-depth report with plenty of lessons for livelihood and income generation for farmers in value chains.
