Fish Farming

The fisheries sector helps alleviate poverty in many parts of the world. Over one billion people rely on fish as a main source of protein, many of them in developing countries. Owing to detrimental fishing methods, the fish population has been dwindling in the country's lakes and rivers to the extend where studies show the fish population is now below the SADC average. The general public being urged to increase their consumption of fish for health reasons, small scale 'environmentally friendly' fish farming systems in rural communities hold the potential for bringing food security and green jobs to many young people and their families. Our TREE program is empowering youth fishing cooperatives in Norton and other rural areas with expertise from the Aquaculture Zimbabwe, University of Zimbabwe and private sector companies such as Lake Harvest.
