Development of a Sustainable Aquaculture Industry

Development of a Sustainable Aquaculture Industry

Dates: 25 October - 7 November, 2017
13 - 26 March, 2018

As fish products are high in both nutritional value and global demand, aquaculture will prove to be an important source of food for communities suffering from shortage, as well as a reliable source of income, stimulating sustainable economies in rural areas.  This programme is designed to both qualify business people in aquaculture and to provide practical tools for policy makers facing decisions over large scale aquaculture development programmes. The programme will concentrate on two major fish species: tilapia and African catfish (clarias sp.).
