Fish farm and tourism resort with an area of 736 hectares estimated at 7.360.000 million EURO

3. The investment's profitability potential

3.1 Tourism

          3.1.1 Construction of the all inclusive resort

          The investment strategy consists in building an all inclusive resort, with a capacity of 600-1000 beds and then, following a plan to attract tourist, by contracting European and international tour operators. Thus, the following ideas should be respected:

a) Adjustment of the existing accommodation places and also building new ones, to reach the capacity of 600-1000 beds
b) Building recreational areas
c) Contracting tour operators
d) Providing international transportation
e) Providing accommodation in Bucharest or Constanta (the nearest cities with international airports)
f) Providing transport in the Danube Delta
g) Creating spaces especially for tourist to carry all sorts of specific activities
h) The investor can find ways to run the touristic activity on its own

Tourists can be accommodated in:
1. 10 holiday cabin complex (20 accommodations)
2. 4 building complex 1,200 sq. m (120 accommodations)
3. Holiday lake house complex (project based - 500 accommodations).

For the accommodations to be put into service, several investments are needed, for redesigning and equipping the existing buildings, and to build new places of accommodation.
The result will be the largest all inclusive entertainment and accommodation resort in the Danube Delta, existing at the moment.
1.   10 holiday cabin complex - 20 available accommodations in the 10 wood cabins (minor adjustments and authorization needed)

2.   4 building complex - 120 accommodations in the four buildings, not yet completely finished

3.   Holiday lake house complex - 500 accommodations – sketch project for over 200 small houses placed on the 15 km dams and canals surrounding the two platforms, each having a wharf like floating terrace and its own boat. The lake houses will be structured in a cultural themed complex, with traditional houses from the Danube Delta and from all over the world.

          Taking into consideration the fact that there is no such resort built in the Danube Delta, the tourists will be attracted by these lake houses, each with its own boat.
          Being a tourist resort with a high degree of development and offering many features, the investor who buys the location must ensure that all the potential tourists will have quick and easy access to the offer.

4.   Recreational areas
Also, on the platforms covering approx. 600 hectares, we recommend setting up recreational spaces, such as beaches and bars, but also arranging the channels so that tourist could walk and enjoy the nature. Also, there should be build channels of about 5 m width to ensure more access in the nature.
To assure complete individual and group touring services and organizing personnel training activities, the building complex needs:

  • building a restaurant;
  • a conference room;
  • sports hall; 
  • terrace arranging; 
  • building a swimming pool and a beach area; 
  • arranging an exclusive children place; 
  • building some outdoor sport fields; 
  • building garages

The area is particularly attractive because of the delta's specific exotic landscape and unique features (details in the video available on our website). Access in the resort can be made both on water and on land, and the Black Sea is just 20 minutes away.

          3.1.2 Tourist packages

Contracting tour operators

          The investor has to contract tour operators, both European and International, that will create attractive touristic packages and distribute them to travel agencies around the world. Currently, we estimate that there are hundreds of thousand of travel agencies, which have offers visualized everyday by approx. 1 million persons. From the number of everyday unique visitors, exists the possibility that at least 2-300  persons/day would purchase a holiday package of 7-14 days at your complex in the Danube Delta

International transportation

          To sustain this high request from the tourists, but also to offer high quality services, the tour operator will have to contract flight packages from international cities to our local airports from Bucharest and Constanta.

Accommodation in Bucharest/Constanta

          Because we can find the situation where the flights will be to long, tourist may want to spend a night in the city where they arrive first. So the tour operator should have the possibility to offer accommodation in Bucharest or Constanta, and also provide a tour of the city of accommodation.

Transportation in the Danube Delta

          Another necessity is providing transportation towards Tulcea, the city at the gates of the Danube Delta, with buses or minibuses of various capacities (depending on the number of tourists that are arriving), and  also water transportation towards the resort, with boats of different sizes. The investor may procure his means of transportation but he also has the possibility to collaborate with companies that already practice this tipe of transportation.

The tourists can benefit from numerous touristic activities and interest points, such as:

  • − sport fishing
  • − trips to LETEA forest, a protected natural monument
  • − gig and sledge trips, balloon flights, paint ball, camp fire
  • − photo shooting, filming, researching, etc. 
  • − sport activities
  • − boat trips in the most beautiful areas in the Danube Delta
  • − fishing and hunting lessons.

100 EUR/day Full access at all the services and activities that can be made in the resort.

200 EUR/day Standard services and activities, plus personnel available 24/24 h (butler and house keeper), room service, catering, boatman, guide, massage. Any wish can be fulfilled, as long as we have the means to do it.


          3.1.3 Development of tourist activity on your own

          If the investor chooses to run this activity on its own, without associating with a specialized company, several arrangements must be made for building an ultramodern touring resort and improving the occupancy:
- assuring services at an European quality
- creating and promoting a special website with many functionalities;
- collaborating with touring agencies;
- participating to international touring fairs;
- media commercials;
- organizing both national and international fishing contests;
- elaborating an entertainment program with many activities every day
          The touristic potential of the region is extremely high, but it's not exploited at its true capacity.
Currently, in the region you can find some hostels/hotels that offer classic accommodation services and from place to place, with the help of the Danube Delta's residents, are offered a few specific local services.
          What we propose in the following is a new dimension of the offers currently on the market. From what can be seen on the photo gallery available on the web site, the resort can offer a little from all the Danube Delta's attractions (fauna, flora, local customs), along with exceptional services of accommodation.

3.2 Aquaculture

         3.2.1 Fish farming

         The high potential of the canals surrounding the two tanks is objectified through the large fish quantity (pike, crucian, carp, bream, etc.), reed resources and the possibility of intense fish farming. For the fish farming activity, it is necessary to:

         At a volume of 3.300.000 cubic meters of water, with an estimated production of 1kg of fish/2 cubic meters of water, generates a quantity of 1.600 tons of fish/year. The aquaculture activity represents a great advantage for the fishing tourism and for the resort's kitchen.

          3.2.2 Other aquaculture activities

On the 15 km dams surrounding the canals intensive aquaculture activities can be developed, such as:

  • - edible clam species;
  • - medicinal leeches;
  • - ducks and geese;
  • - edible frog species;
  • - crab species;
  • - developing an integrated livestock sector.
  • - horticulture  

Within the aquaculture activities, the tourists can interact with the professionals activity as volunteers. This can be an active recreational activity.

3.3 Agriculture

          On the platforms with a surface of about 600 hectares, which are now covered with reed and which aredesigned to protect the juvenile fish, you can organize other agricultural crops. After cutting the reed fromthe platforms, you can make agricultural crops (wheat, corn, etc) and after a while, even special crops, particularly profitable, and sea buckthorn.

           Our proposal consists in conducting agricultural activities on behalf of our company by a third company. It will be signed a contract for providing services, and any grant received from the state will be charged by us. The company providing services will support all the expenses for their activities and the contract's price will be a part of the production obtained in one year.

           Because on the land's surface can be conducted simultaneously both agricultural and fish farming activities, we recommend three options:

1. To conduct between 1 and 3 years of agriculture on the hole surface of the land, as a technological process to prepare the fish farming, and in the coming years, 2 or 3 years of fish farming, all over the land, because this activity generates a much higher income.

2. On a tank to conduct agricultural activities for 1 or 2 years, and on the other fish farming activities, and after two years to reverse, alternating the activities every two years.

3. Permanent agricultural activities.

          Possible cultures on the platforms: wheat, corn, sunflower, canola, fodder crops, vegetable crops, potatoes, legumes, and special crops, such as sea buckthorn, rice. 

          For example, the sea buckthron crops can bring profits as high as the ones from carrying tourist activities, but require a larger investment in the beginning, and the results appear barely in the 3rd year after planting. For planting one hectare of sea buckthorn, the cost is approx. 2500 EUR, but revenues may reach almost 20.000 EUR.

          We recommend the development of agricultural activities before the start of the fish farming because the tanks are covered with very old reed that can not be eaten by the fishes. Also, agricultural activities can not be developed in the same time as tourism activities.
