Think a fish hatcheries business sale is simple? Think again.

Tips for Working with A Business Broker
Brokerage is a mainstay of the business-for-sale marketplace. Brokerage is particularly common in the fish hatcheries business-for-sale market, where aggressive selling strategies are the norm. Brokerage doesn't replace the seller's requirement to be involved in the sale; it augments the seller's efforts and creates a more seamless sale process. To maximize your broker's potential, conduct periodic consultations throughout the process and deliver requested information as quickly as possible.
Selling to a Family Member
The idea of passing a business along to a family member sounds idyllic to many business owners. in reality, a family-based fish hatcheries business sale can be more complicated than selling to a stranger. In fact, selling your fish hatcheries business to a family member can quickly become a no-win proposition. Unless you have agreed to treat the family member like any other buyer, the risk of hard feelings among other potential heirs or family members is high. If possible, discuss a long-term, generational transition with the entire family and seek the advice of a professional consultant.
