Farmers in the southeast of the Great Island are having an opportunity to learn more about fish farming.
Commercial fish production could become an addtitional source of revenue for rural farmers. The technicians from the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries (MAEP) are offering aquaculture training to farmers. This training is being financed by the PSDR (Project for Support of Rural Development) as a capacity building effort.
The fisheries training was started last Monday in the Vatovavy-Fitovinany region of Manakara. Present were Philibert Andramitsirinarivo, Head of the Region and the Executive Director of the PSDR, Georges Randriamamonjisoa.
About 30 farmers participated, coming from the region's four districts, that is Manadara, Ikongo, Ifanadiana and Mananjary. The two-day training included both theory and pratical matters related to raising fish in ponds and rivers. The executive director of the PSDR emphasized that the technical staff of the MAEP are specialists in rural development and, in particular, in aquaculture.
