Farm Africa is an NGO working with communities in Africa to “end hunger … grow farming”. Its July newsletter includes an 8-minute video on aquaculture, farming with fish. The video takes the viewer through 6 stages, from building the small dam to harvesting this vital source of protein. I enjoyed the accompanying music too: the cool guitar reminds me of South Africa’s own Ray Phiri (overseas visitors may have heard him on Paul Simon’s Graceland).
Aquaculture is included once again in South Africa’s IPAPs as a sector singled out for financial support and emphasis (see previous blogs like “Farming in Cape Town” and “Interested in which South African agri sectors are set to receive energy and attention from government as per its strategy?”).
Aquaculture is covered in The Agri Handbook. Find overviews, business plans, role players and further publications here.
