Sustainable Integrated pond based aquaculture with rice and poultry production

Project Achievements

  • Knowledge base on wetlands developed
    • Information useful for planning and  development of integrated fish farming systems  are now available
    • Baseline data on the socioeconomic status of the wetland farmers produced.

  • Functional innovation platforms established
    • Awareness creation through Community sensitization workshops
    • Twelve Aquaculture Innovation platforms have been established.
    • Over 120 women are members of innovation platform
    • Issues for intervention includes fish product marketing and market information, high cost of feed, broodstocks development programme, production of good quality seed, aquaculture financing and development of aquaculture policy towards adoption of BMPs in aquaculture.

Project Achievements Outcomes

  • Establishment of farmer demonstration plots in adopted villages and schools.
  • Eighteen demonstration plots established
  • - Training of farmers in each of the demonstration plots
  • 1,494 farmers trained, out of  which 539 farmers were women and youths

Impacts: 

Institutional strengthening and integrated capacity building of all stakeholders

  • Capacity of the undergraduate and postgraduate students enhanced through the use of the adaptive research facilities for research and training.
  • Over 3500 hundred students have been trained through this process, out of which 1400 are females.
  • Over 15 universities and 4 colleges of agriculture benefited.
  • Fifteen postgraduate students trained. Six of which are females.
  • Capacity of the Department in Charge of Aquaculture and Fisheries Management in the collaborating Universities in these countries is further enhanced.

Plate 6: University students trained with the facilities provided by the project

  • More fish farming based associations are fully participating and 60% of the trained farmers have indicated interest in the adoption of the technologies developed
  • The low cost floating feed pellet developed. This is expected to bring about 80% reduction in the cost of catfish feed (reduction by at least $1)
  • The project have successfully achieved it focus of 100% waste utilizations through maggot production, fish oil and fish meal production and production of mineral rich manure
  • 60,000 fish seeds distributed to farmers by the projects. The project in Nigeria received supports from WAAPP Nigeria to produces 1 million fingerlings
  • WAAPP Nigeria has chosen the project as centre for training emerging fish farmers in Nigeria. 76 farmers so far trained
  • Partnership with WAAPP in area of fish feed production, broodstock development and integrated technology disseminations.
