The inserted group picture was taken in the opening of the “Aquaculture training workshop” which was conducted during the period 17 to 21 September in Kilimanjaro (Tanzania) and organized by Kilimanjaro Agricultural Training Center (KATC). During the 5-day event, we went through a variety of training tools to ensure the most active participation of the workshop participant including a preliminary lecture by myself starting with the world aquaculture, then African aquaculture before focusing on Tanzanian Aquaculture. The workshop had a brain storming session in which each participant responded to the issues of concern related to the development of aquaculture in Tanzania. The analysis of the brain storming session was crucial for formulating the way forward session where we together were able not only to set a production target for aquaculture in Tanzania by also to identify the tools required for the implementation of a short-term plan towards achieving the agreed upon production target. The event included field visits to fish farms as well as to fish markets which will be posted under separate covers.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the course participants and organizers who provided all possible efforts to have a fruitful and successful workshop. I am grateful to all who made my stay in Tanzania an enjoyable experience.
