Starting a direct market business requires changes to a traditional fishing operation. Before plunging headlong, a fisherman should weigh the costs against the benefits. This publication takes you through the needed steps—writing a business plan, projecting cash flow, and calculating a "variable analysis." Knowing the numbers before entering into direct marketing, or whenever you change your fishing operation, will help you make the right decision.
