The objective of this project is to establish an intensive farm, producing high-quality products for both the national and international market throughout the year.
Namibia is the second least densely populated country in the world (3.2 per km²), more than 70 % of the population lives in rural areas and about half of the population depends on agriculture for its livelihood. In the Zambezi region Fish is an important source of nutrients for the majority of the poor people.
Fish is an important source of nutrients for many people in the Zambezi region. As is occurring all over the world the natural fish stocks in river system is being depleted leaving many without a source of affordable protein.
The AquaCulture farm is located in the Zambezi Region of Namibia, on the banks of the Zambezi River close to Katima Mulilo.
The land is suitably situated, with river front on a quiet side chanel on the Zambezi River, thus securing the availabilty of water throughout the year. The area is not exposed to flooding.
We produce two species of Tilapia, a local fish (Bream) found in the Zambezi River around Katima Mulilo:
Three Spot Tilapia (Oreochromus andersonii)
Redbreasted Bream (Tilapia rendalii)
