New Farm Africa Film on Fish Farming in Kenya

12 June 2012, at 1:00am

KENYA - Farm Africa has produced an in-depth film which takes a detailed look at fish farming on the Farm Africa Aqua Shops project in Western Kenya.

The film, "Making Fish Farming Pay" explains how the Aqua Shops project is playing an invaluable role in supporting fish farming in Kenya. It is doing this by providing both training for fish farmers as well as the inputs they need such as fish feed.

The film explains how Aqua Shops owners have been carefully selected and trained vigorously in pond construction and fish husbandry, as well as in business management so they can become the rural entrepeneurs of tomorrow.

The film also interviews both Aqua Shop owners and the Minister for Fisheries in the Kenyan Government who explains the real difference the project is making.

You can watch the film and learn more about the Aqua Shop project here.
