A computer model of fish farming economics was developed for use as a planning tool to include all factors that affect the cost of production and farm viability. This report provides a detailed explanation of the factors that determine the cost of production and affect a farm's viability, including a series of program modifications which, in addition to describing several likely salmon farm scenarios, demonstrate how to use the program to simulate still other operating scenarios. A standard farm is used to illustrate how operating decisions (changing program variables) affect farm viability and the cost of production. The standard farm is defined as 50% financed through debt, well financed for capital purchases, having transport costs similar to the Campbell River area, of a moderate size, having only one farm site, having good management, and raising monosex feminized chinook salmon and accelerated coho salmon in the same numbers each year.
