Review: Lucka Paschal – Erick Kiiza (Tanzania) and Abdel Rahman El Gamal (Founder of the website)

 

 

 

The fish pond shown in the picture is located in Songea (Tanzania). Most of individual fish farmers rely on their own man power upon constructing a fish pond within the community. Traditionally, people in the community help each other while no cash involved. In such situations, the depth of digging is usually based on personal judgment in order to avoid reaching the underground water which if reached would represent a real challenge and could interfere with proper management of the fish pond.
