Affordable Fish Feed Production: Formulation and Pelleting of Low-Cost Feeds

Empowering Aquaculture with Affordable Feeds Formulation and Pelleting of Low-Cost Feeds" plays a pivotal role in enhancing the profitability of fish farming in Sub-Saharan Africa. By locally sourcing ingredients and employing pelleting technologies, this approach significantly reduces feed costs, which typically account for 60% to 70% of a fish farmer's operating expenses. Moreover, pelleted fish feeds are more water-stable, boost nutrient transfer, and are environmentally friendly due to reduced pollution. This cost-effective and efficient method contributes to the sustainability and economic viability of aquaculture in the region.

Flow-Through and Recirculatory Water Systems for Fish Tanks

Enhance fish farming efficiency with sustainable water systems, reducing resource wastage and ensuring robust fish growth. A recirculatory aquaculture system is a technology where water is recycled after filtration to remove suspended matter. This method is used for higher density culture of fish, allowing for maximum use of limited land and water. Water movement into and out of the tank maintains peak water quality conditions despite dense stocking rates. As water passes into the tank it provides oxygen and when it leaves it carries away waste products. Intensive aquaculture in tanks that operate at high stocking densities is furnished with a flow-through system that discharges water, cleans water, and pumps it back through the system. Tanks with a conventional flow-through systems are simpler in design but require an affordable and reliable source of quality water that can be used with minimal pre-treatment. Recirculatory systems are more complex and costly to install but have higher water use efficiency, higher feed conversion, and more exact disease control.

Hapa Nets for Fingerling

Hapa Nets for Mass Fingerling Hatchery Production The "Hapa Nets for Mass Fingerling Hatchery Production" technology addresses the constraints faced by the aquaculture industry in Sub-Saharan Africa due to inadequate and inconsistent supply of high-quality fingerlings from improved fish breeds. Predation, uneven growth rates, and high mortality in open ponds limit aquaculture expansion. The introduction of "hapa" nets—small enclosures within ponds—serves to protect brooders, hatchlings, and juveniles from predators, ensuring better management of fish stocks. This technology allows for closer monitoring and adjustment of breeding, feeding, and aeration processes, resulting in improved fertilization rates, uniform growth, reduced mortality, and increased production of fry and fingerlings, thereby ensuring more reliable and stable returns on investment for hatcheries.

Fast growing catfish: Fast Growing and Hybrid African Catfish

Fast growing hybrid catfish for Africa The technology behind "Fast Growing and Hybrid African Catfish" is crucial for African aquaculture and regional food security. African catfish are well-suited for freshwater farming due to their rapid growth, resilience to environmental conditions, and ability to thrive on low-cost agricultural byproducts. Their hardiness against common pests and tolerance for low water quality make them an attractive choice for aquaculture. However, the scarcity of quality fingerlings from improved catfish breeds is a significant obstacle faced by local hatcheries. This scarcity hampers the efforts of fish farmers to increase yields, meet market demands, and improve returns. As a result, many farmers resort to collecting fish eggs from the wild or purchasing poor quality fingerlings, hindering the potential for increased production and economic benefits. Improving the breeding and availability of quality fingerlings of fast-growing and hybrid African catfish is essential to enhance aquaculture productivity, meet local market demands, and ensure sustainable food production in Africa.
