Credit: Patrick Appenteng (Ghana)

The first photo shows the culture of Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus in floating cages placed in Lake Volta in the Asuogyaman District of Ghana. Typical cages in Lake Volta are square of 5 m x 5 m with a depth of 5 m. The photo shows water lily which relatively causes a nuisance on the water body.

The second photo that is closer to the cages shows the feeding of caged fish as done by cage feeder who is using a local planked 6-m canoe.
