Hosted by FISH4ACP, the seventh virtual tour is bringing together local fisher folk and fish workers, value chain stakeholders, experts, donors and the development community in an online conversation on aquatic value chain development.

The event will cover: 

  • Videos on catfish farming in Nigeria, tilapia production in Côte d’Ivoire and Zimbabwe and oyster production in Senegal and The Gambia. 
  • Debate with local stakeholders and experts on aquaculture as a business and the challenges small-scale fish farmers face in running their businesses.
  • Discussions – actively engaging the audience – on issues related to aquaculture in Africa, good practices and sustainable aqua-business solutions.

Aquaculture is the world’s fastest growing food sector. It is also a booming business in Africa, providing jobs and increasingly important in feeding the continents’ growing population. 

From tilapia ponds in Côte d'Ivoire and in Zimbabwe to Nigerian catfish farmers and oyster producers in The Gambian and Senegal’s mangroves, FISH4ACP’s virtual tour is turning all eyes on aquaculture in Africa.

Find out more about local initiatives that are ramping up production and support communities. Hear from small-scale producers how they run their aquaculture business and learn about the challenges they face in accessing finance or getting good quality and affordable inputs.
