The Fish Farm – Nemo SA / community based fish farming project

The Fish Farm is a South African world first! – a patented micro fish farm which delivers an asset-based means of production to the urban poor, offering them the ability to participate in the economy of South Africa, in the massive growth industry of fish farming, right where they live, in an inner city environment.

Why the Fish Farm?

The Fish Farm was developed in response to observed environmental, economic and social trends in poor communities. With increasing urbanisation, high unemployment, rising transport costs, a deteriorating marine environment, and global warming affecting food security, we have to start thinking differently about how and where we grow our food. The Fish Farm is the answer! By growing food close to where the vast majority of people live, The Fish Farm positively addresses many of these dilemmas.

“A community based social business in aquaculture”

What the Fish Farm Achieves

For the first time globally, profitable small scale but intensive fish farming has now been introduced to the inner city and urban areas. From poor communities in small towns to large cities, the global growth industry of aquaculture is now available as a small business opportunity. Aquaculture, until now, has mostly been restricted to large, low-employment operations with fairly high financial and technical barriers to entry. Now, as an example, instead of one fish farm producing 400 tons of fish, The Fish Farm empowers 100 individuals or families to produce four tons each, profitably, right where they live. The result is the same – 400 tons – but more people and communities are involved.

Serenity South Africa ‘Quality Cotton Knitwear’

serenity-southafrica-cotton-knitts-capetown-nemosaSerenity South Africa

Using all the valuable experience gained from working in larger Knitwear factories in the early years, I  incorporated it into running my own small business – manufacturing, wholesaling and selling my own line of Knitwear and Clothing

Serenity specializes mainly in Ladies knits, but also has Mens and Kiddies ranges. After some experimentation in different yarn types, I decided to specialize in natural fibers – mohair, wool and cotton. There is a definite interest and niche in the market for garments in these yarns – but my cotton range proved to be the most popular and so that is where my main focus has been. With the help of my yarn spinner we developed a unique cotton yarn from scratch – the one is a natural cream colour and then later introduced another which has a flecked appearance to almost looks like a tweed fabric when knitted.

Because this business has been kept operating on a small scale it has meant that I have been involved in all aspects including: Knitting of fabric, designs of garments, pattern making, supervising & management of production – cutting, overlocking, straight sewing, button on & buttonholes, pressing, quality control, costings, customer liaison, as well as the running of my retail outlet at the Woodstock Co Op in Albert Road.

Each year I introduce a couple of new styles and continue to produce alot of the regular favorites. I also love to try individual pieces and cater to all sizes and most styles.

My emphasis in this business is to continue the passion I have for design, and put love into each of my creations so they can be enjoyed by everyone!

Happy Days

Linda

BACK GROUND STORY TO NEMO SA

marcel-durler-foundernemosa-nemosa-networking-online-enetworking-cape-town-southafrica-marceldurlerFounded by:  Marcel Durler on 14th February 2010.

Network in Motion Social Awareness South Africa is an e-Networking business that incorporates NPOs and businesses linked together to build a brand with the vision of Unity in Communities.

It creates jobs and gives exposure to its associates.  It has been established to make a positive change or difference in South Africa leveraging off various Social Media platforms and websites to give exposure to those who network through us and to those who have not had the chance or opportunity to become part of the electronic era.  If we encounter a person/ organisation that is doing good in a community but is not registered e.g. a soup kitchen, our Business Associates (BA) can create a free listing and website and put them into a category and give them exposure through the network with the aim that another business/ organisation may offer to adopt them and provide donations to help and empower them.

The Business Network Category and the other categories will give valuable exposure through our database.  In exchange for our e-networking services, we are remunerated and a portion of the remuneration goes back into various NPO organisations of our choice.  This amounts to 10% of our income.

Marcel Durler lost his business and millions of rand’s during the recession at the end of 2009/ beginning 2010. Nemo SA was birthed through a humble experience of being taken to his knees.

Thanks:  Marcel is ever thankful and is constantly reminded of a good friend Mr Edward Beeka who helped him during this difficult and challenging time.  Edward has always believed in Marcel’s vision for Nemo SA – ‘Unity in Communities’.  Edward was the first sponsor for Nemo SA since inception.  He is the Owner of Red Security and Pro Events.
