What to do

  • Find a busy spot with heavy mobile and pedestrian traffic
  • Draw and mesmerize your audience with music, while you add fish fat/oil to the fire and grill for aroma.
  • Ensure you use the hybrid fish aka Heteroclarias
  • Be prompt and punctual
  • Cut a 2.2kg catfish into 7 parts and prepare
  • Marinate fish for about 2 hours for deep absorption of spice

SELLING PRICE

  1. For 2.2kg, Each part costs N500 while head costs N700
  2. For 3-4kg fish, head costs N1500 while body parts cost N700 to N1000 especially in great locations

PROFITABILITY

On your worst days, you make at least N1000 profit per fish and that is like N5000 on a 10kg order daily. 5000×30 days = 150,000 (how much is your friend’s salary again?)
