Ok Guys,

I am a full time internet marketer and make my living doing it, but to be honest I am having a brain fart with this new opportunity that has arisen...

I have a friend/connection from Bhurma who wants to sell fresh sea fish over here...

He can supply at super low, competitive prices...

But he does not know how to break the market here in the UK...

He wants to be able to ship tons of fish at a time and be able to sell them to restaurants and fishmongers and anyone else that will take the product in large quantities...

If I can find him clients he will split the profit with me 50/50...

So any ideas people? how would I target/find clients in this space on the actual internet?

I know I can offline market which my partnet will be doing but what about the online business... I am finding it difficult to devise a fesable plan that can work for this niche/market

I will paypal $15 to the best most thought through answer

Thank you very much indeed
Louis Doughty

        You won't manage to export fresh fish in good conditions as when it arrives it's not fresh anymore, the fish has to be frozen, it will have to come in reefer containers and you'll also need an health certificate from the local authorities that can be accepted by customs at destination. If you're going to do international trade I also suggest you to study incoterms, just google it. Good luck in your venture it can be an interesting business.

          Exactly. Frozen isn't fresh. The farther you plan to sell from the coast the more weary people will naturally be. Something else to consider.

    You might start here Loudou

    Import guidance - Seafish

    ask them about a consultation
    Consultations - Seafish

    If you have 50% in the deal, I would be looking for a UK distributor and cut them in for 25%, you sit back and enjoy your 25% for opening the doors.
