Feeding fish

 

A major success factor in rural small holder freshwater aquaculture is the type of feeds used and the use of the right feed mixes. Most farmers use farm based feeds supplemented with commercial feeds or just mixing them.

Basic onsite fish production training

 


Traditionally, rural small holder fish farming has not been practiced in rural areas hence extensive basic fish production training are often conducted on site. The trainings, which are mainly practical using innovative and inclusive approaches, also includes a bit of theory. The local extension officers, particularly from the Department of Livestock Production and Development are actively involved in both theoretical and practical demonstrations.
