Demonstrating Dutch sustainable aquaculture best practices and provide training to boost fish farming in Tanzania.
- Region: Tanzania
- Sector: Aquaculture
- Start: 2018
The Tanzanian aquaculture sector has great potential. The market demand for fish is overwhelming however not fully met by supply. This presents a challenge to food security but also a business opportunity for fish farming.
FoodTechAfrica was built to unlock this potential in a sustainable and profitable way, combining our powerful aquaculture solutions with market requirements. Our partnership brings a powerful mix of knowledge, practical skills and technology to the table. Enabling fish farmers to overcome farming constraints and increase the yield of high quality fingerlings and fish.
We demonstrate aquaculture solutions on a real-life demonstration fish farm in Tanzania. Our recirculation based technology has been specifically developed for the East African aquaculture sector. Its closed and compact design offers full control of the culture environment, enables production in urban areas and efficient use of inputs such as feed and water.
Our solution will be demonstrated in Tanzania from 2019 onwards and aims to inspire entrepreneurial minds to get involved in fish farming. We believe that successful fish farming goes beyond purchasing individual solutions but lies in providing the full package and adopting an integrated approach.
Our project is supported by the Netherlands Government through the Impact Cluster initiative. We work in close collaboration with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Dar es Salaam. The impact cluster is coordinated by Larive International.
The Tanzania Impact cluster is a public-private partnership composed of the following partners:
Holland Aqua, Viqon, Fishion, Genap, Til Aqua, Larive International and Lattice Consulting.
