Business & Production Plans

These business planning tools are designed to provide Maine aquaculture business owners with updated resources and capabilities to help strengthen their businesses. Each suite of tools includes software to develop a production plan and a business plan for the grower’s species of choice (oysters, mussels, scallops, or seaweed), complete with user manuals and a two-hour, one-on-one training session with MAA Project Manager Christian Brayden.

The business plan features include short and long-term budget projections and tracking, financial projection and analysis tools, monthly cash flow projections, costs of production analysis, profitability analysis, sensitivity analysis, and breakeven analysis. The production plans offer additional capabilities such as short and long-term production projections and tracking, data-based growth projections, monthly sales planning and tracking, and a production calendar.
