Aquaculture Research in Africa

Aquaculture Research conducted in Africa and elsewhere has resulted in the identification of a small number of species as potentially important and efforts are directed towards development of suitable technologies for their culture. Research has been directed towards culture of tilapia by controlling overpopulation through cage culture, sex-direction and mono-sex culture, genetic selection and selective breeding and on integrating with agriculture and live-stock systems. Simple techniques of breeding and seed production are available for difficult-to-spawn species but are yet to reach target users, namely village level fish farmers in many countries.
